Bexley’s top sporting youngsters have been selected for this year’s Sporting Best scheme.

This year’s crop includes polo canoeist brothers Jamie and Oliver Thomson, one of 13 sports represented by 21 athletes. Now in its fourth year, the scheme has been developed in partnership with Sidcup-based Coca-Cola Enterprises, who provide funding and other support for young sports stars competing at national and international level.

Previous successes include Adam Ball, who is now contracted to Kent County Cricket Club and is playing in their first team, professional boxer Lewis Pettit and Sophie Brundish, gymnast in the recent Panasonic Olympic advert.
