A MULTI-TALENTED theatre and music star who has his sights set on studying medicine has found time to become a top table tennis player.

Cameron McGeachy recently played in the Boys' Brigade British table tennis finals in Belfast and helped his team finish in an impressive third place.

This was closely matched by a second placed finish in the Scottish finals for his 2nd Port Glasgow Company.

When he is not practising his TT skills, the Notre Dame High pupil is playing saxophone for the Inverclyde Schools Band or tuned percussion for his BB band.

Fifth year pupil Cameron, who is 16, said: "I was very proud to represent the Boys' Brigade at table tennis.

"I've been playing since I was 12-years-old and I started the Boys' Brigade when I was in primary one.

"We did very well at both finals.

"At the Scottish finals we were playing against some of the best players in the country."

Busy Port teenager Cameron, of Glenside Road, is in fifth year at Notre Dame in Greenock and he has just started his Highers.

He hopes to go on to be a doctor.

He has been in the BB since he was five and now helps out as a leader.

Cameron added: "The BB is great, it gives you so many opportunities."

Cameron and his company are heading for the British band championships in June - and it will mark the start of a hectic summer.

He will be heading with Kayos theatre group to the Edinburgh Festival for a performance of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee at the Fringe.

Cameron said: "It is a great show and we are very excited about the Fringe."
