    Hopefully my little nephew. Plays county cricket for Leicestershire under 15s (he is only just 13) and has just been picked for England hockey training at his age. He is at the bottom rung and he has not really discovered other distractions yet but he is very committed (plays sport almost every day)

    People probably reluctant to name names. I know someone who has a real chance of "making it" if she keeps going at her present rate.

    Re: Can you name a future sports star?

    Depends what you mean by "star" if you mean making it as a professional, I played age group cricket against Liam Livingstone who has just been called up for the England Squad to play NZ. Was never more than your average junior county player but worked harder than most and got a shot and Lancs and will be their captain this season. Its about working hard at that age but when you turn 18/19/20 the lure of partying becomes too much for most people with high potential dont make it because they want to live their lives like normal young lads and lasses.

    Re: Can you name a future sports star?

    I recall watching a County Junior team playing in the English County finals at Frilford.
    Four of the team of eight were from my club including two 13 year olds.
    I turned to the County 'blazers' watching them and said that we could have a future Walker Cup pairing there.
    Two laughed out loud and a couple of others shook there heads.

    It so nearly happened, one of the lads was a shoe in at the start of the season but was ultimately treated very badly by the selectors.
    The other made the team, and went on to play twice in the Ryder Cup.

    Going o/t, but where did he play? Not a sport with the best structure to produce stars, in this country.

    Harry Cochrane the 16 year old Hearts midfielder looks a bit special.
    His very lightweight frame did not stop him getting the better of Celtic and Scotland's tough captain Scot Brown in a recent game.
