What a tough category this was for the judges.

Three outstanding candidates to choose from but the judges were impressed at the achievements of Cameron who has already succeeded so many times in golf.

One town coach told how they thought he had the potential to go as far, or even further than, than another Hartlepool star – Graeme Storm.

Cameron himself said: “I would love to turn pro and win a major. That is my ambition.”

The 14-year-old has just won an order of merit at Seaton Carew Golf Club and, in the last 18 months, has seen his handicap drop from 24 to 5.

He has won a string of junior titles, been chosen for the elite development squad at Dyke House Sports and Technology College, and appeared for teams at county level – with England call-ups now beckoning.

His dedication to his sport shone out even on the night of the sports awards.

He had been involved in a pro-am tournament at Rockliffe Hall and came straight from the event to get to the awards night.

The final word, though, should go to the nomination papers sent to the Mail for Cameron which said: “He fully deserves to win. He is truly special.”
