Double take in badminton final

SOLIHULL twins Jacob and Nathan James quite often find themselves doing the same things - and that was very much the case at the weekend.

SOLIHULL twins Jacob and Nathan James quite often find themselves doing the same things - and that was very much the case at the weekend.

That’s because the identical duo, aged 11, both made it through their respective heats to reach the final of a county badminton tournament - against each other.

Finding themselves face-to-face is nothing new for the Jacobs, but playing for the chance to win the Warwickshire County under-12s tournament, things got a little more serious.

Nathan took the first of three matches, despite having played more games to qualify, before Jacob equalled things to set up an exciting winner-takes-all match.

After a well fought battle it was Jacob who gained the final match, the trophy and no doubt the bragging rights in the James household.
