On the 18th May, Herefordshire's Chad Warren travelled to the Glasgow Youth International for three days of competition. Competing in the team event with five peers, Chad's first match was against the Scotland no. 1. A very high level of performance saw him go down 11 and 19 against a player who would go on to win the individual event over the weekend. This was to be the pattern as the draw Chad was pitched against the top Scottish players in all three disciplines. Despite being a year younger than his opponents he contributed to high quality matches and gained encouragement that his hard work enabled him to compete at this level. Chad is grateful to the Herefordshire Badminton Academy for their continued support.
