Mollie Patterson was one of England’s best performers at the Spanish Youth Open.

The 14-year-old from Brancaster Staithe, playing alongside Charlotte Bardsley and Megan Gidney, helped England to top their group in the team competition by winning her individual matches.

However, England found France A too strong in the quarter-finals and were beaten 3-0 as their opponents went on to win silver.

In the Cadet Singles, Patterson qualified for the knockout stage by finishing second in her group thanks to a 3-0 (12-10, 11-9, 11-9) win over Claudia Perez of the host nation.

Having received a bye in the last 64, she was beaten in the last 32 by Russia’s Natalia Malinina, who won 3-1 (12-10, 11-7, 8-11, 11-4). In the doubles, Patterson and Gidney beat Ines Batista and Silvia Santos of Portugal 3-0 in the first round but ran into the top seeds and eventual champion from Russia in the last 16 and were defeated 3-0.
