Badminton England U15 Gold

Oliver Stansfield returned to winning ways in the Badminton England U15 gold event in Leigh. Stansfield has had a difficult year suffering both a leg fracture and serious impact to his knee injury. 

Recent wins at Welshpool and the Gwent Open indicated a return to decent form but he really stepped up in Leigh only being taken to three sets once. 

In the final he defeated top seed Harry Hodges 21-13 21-15. In the doubles he also reached the finals with Ireland's Kyle Magee but fell in two sets to Hong and Van Leeuwen. Oliver will now return to the boys' star group in the next event which contains the best GB U15 boys.
