King’s School student Matthew Leete won gold for England in the International Schools Championships in Cardiff.

In a well-organised and extremely busy competition, teams of two played in three age groups over a three-day period.

Matthew and partner Josh Bennett, of Sussex, fought their way to the final of the under-14 boys in which they triumphed over the England B team by a 3-1 margin.

Matthew said he was grateful to local businessman Peter Durham, of Durham Cleaning Services, for his financial support, towards travel and training costs.
