READING’s Jamie Liu helped England to win team gold at the Cadet Six Nations event in the Netherlands.

In a close tournament, 13-year-old Liu and team-mates Ethan Walsh, Joe Cope and Josh Weatherby beat Norway and Germany both 7-3 and drew their other three matches 5-5 against Sweden, Netherlands and Denmark.

It left them level with Sweden at the top of the standings, but with a superior win record as the Swedes’ two victories had both been by a 6-4 margin.

With each tie consisting of eight singles and two doubles, Liu won six of his 15 matches in the tournament.

These included a crucial victory in the draw against Denmark when he came from 2-0 down to beat Emil Friis Hansen 3-2 (6-11, 7-11, 11-6, 11-7, 11-5) in a cracking encounter.

In the individual competition, Liu, who attends the National Talent Academy at Ackworth School in Yorkshire, was eliminated in the group stage after winning just one of his five games.
