GB U17 International, Teagan Williams-Stewart (aged just 14), added to her bronze medal from the Essex Senior Open (in September) and her bronze from the U17 BRC (in October) when taking silver at the Bristol U17 BRC Tournament, held at the weekend (29th October). Teagan missed out on gold by just one hit after losing 15-14! Well done Teagan!!
