A Battling Au Yeung Goes Close to Taking Golden Opportunity; BADMINTON


THE annual Northumberland Championships, part of the Badminton England Senior Gold Circuit, saw 50 of the country's best players on the circuit congregate at the Tyneside Badminton Centre.

The men's singles entry featured 10 of the top 30 in the domestic rankings and was bolstered this year by the presence of the top two in the Scottish domestic rankings in Matthew Carder and Ben Torrance.

The men's singles was weakened by the absence through injury of both top seed Joel Douse and the fifth seed and defending champion James Farmer.

The semi-final saw Yeung up against Torrance, who took the opening set to 13.

A spirited effort in the second saw Yeung make a good start to lead 5-2 - only to be pegged back by the Scot who led 11-8 at the interval.
