Laurago’s lost an exciting match 5-4 to Chew Valley in the North Somerset Badminton League.

Laurago’s went down 5-4 to an up and coming Chew Valley team in Division 5 of the North Somerset Badminton League.

Lauragos are part of Weston Open Badminton Club and are in their inaugural season of competition.

This was the team’s third match on the bounce and featured Ellie Maspero for her second-ever league match standing in for Laurago’s stalwart Lorraine Armstrong.

Chew Valley took the first two mixed matches before Laurago’s started their fightback winning the third mixed and all three ladies.

The youthful Chew Valley men however dominated the male encounter clinching a 5-4 victory for the visitors. Laurago’s player of the match was Angela Jenner winning all three of her games.

Manager Ian Laurence praised the team stating: “This result shows real progress. We are looking forward to seeing what the team can achieve in the second half of the season.”
