First published in Sport

POULSHOT brother and sister William and Amelia Bissett are two of five Wiltshire youngsters included on the Lawn Tennis Association’s Aegon FutureStars programme.

The duo, aged 15 and nine respectively, were also part of the scheme, which recognises and supports some of the best juniors in the country, last year.

Both train at the University of Bath’s Tennis Centre and are joined in the FutureStars programme by nine-year-old Stanley Brown, from Chippenham, who trains at Swindon’s Next Generation Club, Kembrey Park.

Also on the programme are Swindon youngsters Ema Lazic, 13, and Niamh Townsend, 12.

The talented youngsters have been included as part of the 2013 intake of players and will be part of a group of 486 top juniors who receive levels of funding and support from the LTA.
