Agathangelou adds Welsh to Scottish title

England's Mariana Agathangelou and Scotland's Jillie Cooper made it two titles in successive weekends when they added the Yonex Welsh title to their Bank of Scotland International women's doubles victory.

The pair, who were fourth seeds in Wales despite winning from an unseeded position in Glasgow, beat top seeds Huang Bing and Chloe Magee 21-15 21-23 21-11 in the semi-finals just as they had done in the Scottish Open.

In the final they beat Dutch pair Ilse Vaessen and Rachel van Cutsen 17-21 21-19 21-16.

Now they will be aiming to make it a hat-trick in this weekend's Yonex Irish Open.
