Theo Walcott switches on Carterton Xmas lights

Up and coming Arsenal and England football star Theo Walcott thrilled the residents of Carterton last night (27th Movember) when he visited the town to switch on the Carterton christmas lights at the Carterton Town Hall.

Theo, whose grandparents live in Carterton, made history when he became the youngest England player in a full international match on 30th May 2006 at Old Trafford aged 17 years and 75 days.
