NINE-year-old Kyle Jay has already proved himself to be a winner at Portman Road.

The Castle Hill Primary School, Ipswich pupil won a penalty competition staged on the Ipswich Town practice pitch, beating 35 other young hopefuls.

He won his way to the final with four successes from six kicks, and then netted all three penalties in a competition sponsored by AXA.

Goals have been easy to come by for this talented youngster whose father Steve is joint manager of Hadleigh United with Dean Skinner.

Kyle was top scorer for his club Ransomes last season with 47 goals, and he is leading scorer this term with 13.
