Grimsby teen Hamish Falconer excels on court and on grass
GRIMSBY teenager Hamish Falconer is continuing to impress on two fronts with his sporting ability.
The 16-year-old has moved top of the England boys' Under-17 rankings, having previously been number one in the Under-15 and Under-13 age-groups.
And when Falconer – who retained the Under-19 title at the Allam Humber Open Bronze event in July – swaps the squash racket for football boots, he is also winning admirers – at Blundell Park.
The Louth schoolboy is a Grimsby Town Youth centre-back and played for the club's first-team in pre-season.

His father, Neil, added that although he has the number one ranking, his squash is "now taking a back seat".
Falconer's younger brother Harry, meanwhile, is also gunning for a number one ranking in squash.
The 14-year-old lies third at present in the boys' Under-15 category and is hoping to top the pile before he has to move up an age-group.
He reached the semi-finals at the British Junior Squash Championships in Manchester last weekend.
Although he lost his Under-15 semi-final 3-0 to Robbie Keefe, organisers said the match was a "thrilling battle" and that the score didn't reflect Harry's performance.
