NINE-year-old Theo Lamey is the Somerset Under-11s county closed squash champion.

The Year 5 pupil also came third in the Under-13s tournament out of a field of 14 and has been invited to represent Somerset.

The talented youngster trains at King’s College and the Victoria Club, and is an all-rounder when it comes to sport.

Earlier this year, he won the Under-9s Somerset County Closed Tennis Tournament and played for the county team; he also plays cricket for Somerset Under-11s.

Lamey said: “I am so happy to have come first this year, as last year I finished in second.

"I can’t wait to compete in the regionals."

It was also a highly successful week for the Rew brothers, Thomas and James, in the South West Regional Closed Squash Championships at the Victoria Club and Millfield School in Street.

James, who is currently 15 years old and attends King’s College, won the Boys Under-17s Championship, beating Finn Irish of Cornwall in the final, having previously won the Somerset County Championships at the end of last month.

Younger brother Thomas, who is 12 and goes to King’s Hall School, followed on from winning the Devon County Under-13 title last month, triumphing in the Boys’ South West Regional Closed Championship, beating Ollie Gribble of Devon in the final.

Both boys were playing a 'year up' in this competition, and neither lost a game in any of their matches.

The brothers are talented all-round sportsmen and play cricket for their relevant Somerset age group teams, as well as for Taunton St Andrews and both golf to a high standard.
