City schoolboy '˜conkers' the world at annual championships
Around 200 competitors battled it out as the World Conker Championships returned to the village of Southwick, near Oundle, on Sunday.
Thomas Deacon Academy pupil Oliver Simons (right) aged 16 triumphed in the Young Adult category - the second time he has held a world conker title having won the Junior category in 2013. In the final he dressed in Peterborough Morris kit as he dances “Morris” with many local dance sides.
