Letham lad Alex Rooney took bronze down at the English Snowboarding Championships last month.

The 12-year-old is competing against much older boarders but it doesn’t show in his results.

The family recently returned from holiday in Landgraaf, the Netherlands, which boasts the largest indoor slope in Europe.

Alex is about to start with a new GB coach in Glasgow and he’s very excited to get going.

Sponsors GNU are also kindly providing him with a new board for the new season.
