Theo Walcott has been named the BBC’s 2006 Young Sports Personality Of The Year in a cermony at the NEC in Birmingham.

In the past twelve months Theo has gone from terrorising the Championship with Southampton to mesmorising performances with Arsenal in the Premiership, as well as the infamous summer visit to Germany with the England Squad.

This year the footballer went one better, to end a fantastic year in which he transferred to Arsenal and went to the World Cup with England.

Though nominated, Theo missed out on the award last year to Harry Aikines-Aryeetey, making this years victory even more sweet.

Walcott finally made his bow in the top flight in August, coming on as a substitute in the 1-1 draw at home to Aston Villa. The winger has since featured regularly in both the Premiership and Champions League, impressing boss Arsene Wenger while excelling for the England Under-21 side and playing an integral part in their qualification for next summer’s European Championships.
