Spot on Kieth. Well done.
Ray, Viburnum has opposite leaves or whorls of three.
This has alternate leaves and a typical cotoneaster growth pattern. Felted underside of narrow pointed leaves indicate C franchettii or a cross pollenated seedling of it.

If you let it get big you can trim the lower branches off and then have room to plant underneath it!

:hello1: Tabatha, that looks like a Pyracantha....did you notice that it had very sharp thorns?
The birds love the berries in the autumn/winter.

Hi Julie, as I think I said last night I have a feeeling it could be Acer cappadocicum, or Gleditsia "Sunburst" if you can manage to zoom in on the leaves a bit I can probably give you a ppositive id.
