Mr A Smith, Head of Classics at Stamford and Fives Coach, said: “The boys from Year 9, and two playing up from Year 8, played in the U14 Open over three days. They contended with the unfamiliar courts and ball, playing against boys from a range of other schools from across the UK.
“I am very proud of all the Stamford players, who showed great tenacity, resilience and skill throughout, approaching each game with great determination, camaraderie and sportsmanship. A special mention must go to Chase Burgess who reached the singles final and also Cameron Drutman who reached the doubles finals with Chase. Chase and Burgess won their final against the Winchester 1st Pair with a superb comeback in the second game, eventually winning a tough final 11-6, 11-6.”
