Alex Dunn and Holly Newall SNJC U15 2012Scotland's Alex Dunn stormed to the Under 15 Star boys' singles title in the Milton Keynes Gold event at the weekend - and went on to claim a hat-trick of titles.

Dunn won both his Group B matches before beating England's Andrew Heinemann in the semi-finals and joint third seed Adam Lam in the final, winning all his matches in straight games.

Top seed Holly Newall took the girls' Under 15 Star title with an equally impressive display. She won two well-contested group matches before beating Avon's Kirby Ngan in the semi-finals 19-21 21-9 21-13 and then overcame Samodani Wijetunge 20-22 21-18 21-15 in the final.

Second seeds Dunn and Newall then teamed up to take the 32-pair knockout mixed title, beating team-mates Matthew Duguid and Eleanor O'Donnell 21-14 21-11 on the way to taking the title with a 21-18 21-19 win over George Priestman and Elizabeth Tolman, the joint fifth seeds.

But Dunn wasn't finished there. He and Duguid, the second seeds, took the doubles title with three straight-game wins, lifting the title with a 21-15 21-15 victory over Harry Arksey and Alex Mitchell in the final.

Scotland also took the girls' singles title when second seed Toni Woods built on her two straight-game wins in Group B to storm through to the knockout stages. The key win came in her first knockout match when she survived a cliff-hanger against Yorkshire's Niphada Khamphuban 21-13 21-23 21-19. Her semi-final was almost as close as she overcame Molly Chapman 21-16 19-21 21-15. But the final was less exacting as she defeated Lia Willis 21-15 21-8.

Scotland team-mate Biatrice Gabell won two close group matches to join Woods in the knockout stages but then fell to top seed Katie Tran 21-15 23-21.
