PRIZE WINNERS... Moorhead’s badminton team.

MOORHEAD High School's Morgan Hargreaves was crowned Under 14 Hyndburn and Ribble Valley District Badminton champion.

Morgan overcame his school friend Sam Lucas who he beat 15-12 in an all-Moorhead final at Rhyddings High School.

And Morgan picked up another prize after linking up with James Dryden in the doubles and finishing runners-up.

Ashley Wyer and his partner Sam Lucas and Nick Oates and Scott Oates were joint third in the Under 14s doubles event as Moorhead dominated the prizes.

In the Under 16 boys, Moorhead's Martin Fearon was just defeated by a Lancashire representative from Clitheroe Grammar School in a tight final as he had to settle for the runners-up award in the singles.

But he made sure he came out on top in the doubles, partnering Scott Redfearn, as they battled their way through to become the Under 16 champions.

In the girls Under 16 event, Moorhead's Shazia Walmsley finished third in the singles but went one step further in the doubles.

She and partner Emma McGuiness were runners-up while the Moorhead contingent dominated third spot.

Charlotte Alldritt and Ami Connolly and Louise Lawson and her partner Nicola Hall finished in joint third place.
