A promising Aylesbury basketball player’s chances of making the big time soared after he got a £1,000 town council grant.

Connor Stuart, an England under-18 international, will use the money to attend a basketball tournament with Team Hoop Dreams UK in Florida from July 8 to 24.

Town council committee administrator Belle Daytonn said: “These grants are for young people who show a high aptitude for achievement in sport. He’s already competing at international level.”
