TWO young city tennis players have been making a great impression on the county scene having finished first and second on the LTA Buckinghamshire leaderboard for the winter season.

Dylan Smith and Marcus Persuad, both 10-years-old, were presented with gold and silver medals by the LTA this week for their fantastic efforts over the last few months.

The youngsters both play for Woughton on the Green-based Milton Keynes Tennis Club where they train several times a week with coach Stuart Lovell.

The winter season runs from September to March and the pair have been competing in county and regional level tournaments in which they earn the points that go towards the overall leaderboard.

Dylan, who attends Giffard Park Primary School, has also been selected to train with the Buckinghamshire squad ahead of a two day competition against other East Region counties in May.

Marcus, who goes to Tickford School in Newport Pagnell, is also looking to keep up his form as the boys now go into the busy summer season.
