Cromer youngster Charlotte Pollard is celebrating winning a brace of county badminton championships.

The 11-year-old from Norwich Road, won the U-11 Norfolk title – and well as taking the doubles crown with partner Issy Mellors from Norwich.

The event took place at the Sewell Park College off Norwich's Constitution Hill at the weekend.

Charlotte attends Gresham's Prep School at Holt and only took up the sport about a year ago.

Mum Fiona, daughter of Austin and Jean Croxen who used to run a newsagents shop in Cromer, said Charlotte was thrilled with her win. Next season she will compete at U-13 level.

Both players are coached by Ian Murphy.
