When he isn’t playing football, this young bookworm can be found with his head buried in a novel, a hobby that’s landed him an award.

Having read 50 books, Connor Denton has received the Gold Award in the Lancashire Reading Trail.

The sports fan, who attends Lord Street Primary School, Colne, names Steve Cole as his favourite author.

Connor plays football for Bury Youth Academy, enjoys watching all types of sport on TV and counts maths and ICT among his favourite subjects at school.
