A Mansfield teenager is among 17 Nottinghamshire-based young athletes who have been selected to compete at the 2021 School Games National Finals.

The multi-sport event for talented young athletes across the UK is taking place at Loughborough University from 2nd to 5th September.

Jamie Newton, 15, of Mansfield, has been selected for wheelchair basketball. He plays for Mansfield Maulers.

The School Games National Finals will be the first multi-sport event for young athletes following the lifting of lockdown restrictions.

The 2021 School Games National Finals is supported by National Lottery funding from Sport England and is delivered by the Youth Sport Trust.
