That's funny, I was thinking it would be colt as well. In the absence of any structured ideas, here's a random scattering.

1 Leading character in Nursery Rhyme SIMPLE SIMON
2 Performer on original Band Aid single BOY GEORGE
3 Book of the Bible GENESIS
4 Young male who features in several different sports MASCOT
5 Means of promoting a product PLUG
6 Nickname of Wimbledon champion PISTOL PETE
7 Character in TV cartoon voiced by a Hollywood celebrity
8 British crime film THE LONG GOOD FRIDAY
9 Popular children's game SNAP
10 Character in Mozart opera - FIGARO
Pete
Head of Qulaity Control

Pete another pin falls! 5 is indeed Plug. You're on the right track with 4 although a mascot could be female. Danny your answer is ingenious but doesn't tie in with the theme. Number 4 is a generic name describing a lad who assists in various sports.

Yes Pete Number 4 would be Ball Boy, a fellow you might find in Football, Tennis and Baseball. Methinks you may have rumbled the connection or are very close to it!

Would six be PISTOL PETE?

I'm feeling that the winner might be having a Beano

Sorry Andy Pistol Pete is not what I have in mind and does not fit the connection. I think he might have been an American creation of Walt Disney's. The connection and o-o-o are rather more British than that. The winner might have a beano all right but he might have to be a bit of a topper as well!
