In the 13 years age group Grace Mooney took the bronze.

In the last age group, although not winning a medal, Spalding gymnasts did well by finishing fourth through Alex Osbiston with Miyah Woods fifth and Maddie Redhead sixth.

The championship was won by Thompson and Kato taking joint-first place overall.

This was also a qualifier for the County team to take part in the Regional Inter-County Championships at Leicester in April.

It was a brilliant day by all the gymnasts who performed excellent new floor routines choreographed by Kelsie Porter.
