Jude Blackman, a Year 11 student at Felpham Community College, and Andrew Brownlie from Burgess Hill, are celebrating badminton success in the tournament of the season.

The boys, members of the Sussex under-17 squad, won gold in the boys’ doubles at the under-17 silver Badminton England event held in Milton Keynes.

I am now looking forward to the nationals which will be held in April.

Blackman said: “I have been playing badminton since primary school and now train at Horsham with the Horsham PC Badminton group, as well as for Sussex. Winning at Milton Keynes was fantastic and I am now looking forward to the nationals which will be held in April.”
