BOTHWELL badminton player Kirsty Gilmour followed up helping Scotland successfully defend their team title at the Northumberland under-19 junior tournament by lifting two individual titles at the same event.

Gilmour took the women’s singles and then teamed up with Caitlin Pringle to win the doubles. However, she was edged out of a hat trick as she and Matthew Carder lost narrowly in the final of the mixed doubles.

Gilmour will be in action at the Scottish International Badminton Championships at the Kelvin Hall in Glasgow from November 23 to 27.

The Times & Speaker has teamed up with BADMINTONscotland to offer five pairs of tickets valid for the entire championships to our readers.
