JOSEPH VESSEY is head over heels at the moment.
The 11-year-old from Oakes has qualified to represent Yorkshire at the British Acrobatic and Tumbling Gymnastics Championships in Stoke in May.
In the elite category and among the top eight tumblers in the country, Salendine Nook High School student Joseph will compete in the Under 12 age group.
He was selected after taking the gold medal as a clear winner with 73 points in the Yorkshire Preliminaries at Barnsley Metro.
Also a keen basketball player and swimmer, Joseph is a member of the Diamonds Gym Club in Halifax.
