St Neots teenager Charlotte Boston belied her status as 10th seed to reach the final of the Girls’ Under 16 category at the Butterfly Schools’ National Table Tennis Championships.
The 14-year-old Longsands Academy pupil was boosted by the non-appearance through injury of top seed and Commonwealth Games silver medallist Tin-Tin Ho.
She would have been likely to meet Ho at the quarter-final stage but took advantage of her absence to reach the final.
Boston was eventually beaten by second seed Letitia McMullan of Fareham in the showpiece match.
She found her 16-year-old opponent in top form as she lost 3-0 (7-11, 2-11, 8-11).
