Nine year old Elliott Hurrell went one better than his father and won the children’s World Conker Championships.
The Whittlesey lad’s father Ady, who claimed the world crown in 2007, lost in the men’s final.
Ady said: “Elliott is very competitive so he always likes to do better than me. This year he did it.”
The pair have enjoyed a memorable few weeks - Elliott won the Castor Conker Championships, while Ady beat his brother Maurice from Alloa, Scotland, to clinch the Cambridgeshire Conker Championship.
They will be in action this weekend at the Scottish Conker Championship.

Ady said: “To be honest other people try to avoid playing us. In the championships you play the person you are stood next to and not many people stand next to me or my son!”
