Schoolboy crowned UK’s official Top Trumps Champ

Published on: 22nd May 2012

10-year-old Lloyd Horne emerged triumphant at the Grand Final of the National Top Trumps Schools Tournament, staged in London.

The Warrington schoolboy was handed the trophy by Sir Steve Redgrave, the official ambassador for the 2012 Top Trumps Schools Tournament. As well as the trophy and a host of games goodies, Lloyd now gets to row with Sir Steve on the River Thames during Summer as part of a ‘money can’t buy’ sporting experience.

The Grand Final was played on a special commemorative bumper version of Top Trumps, which featured London 2012 medal hopefuls.

Sir Steve said: “Lloyd did fantastically to beat more than 100,000 schoolchildren. He is a very worthy champion and I had better get lots of practise in before we race on the River Thames!”

Lloyd added: “I’m thrilled to bits. I can’t wait to row with Sir Steve; he’s a legend. I didn’t even think I would get to the Grand Final. I had one last practise on the train coming down with my mum and dad, I beat them both.”
