Spalding Gymnastic Academy took a group of their talented youngsters to a competition at Dave’s Club in Colchester.

Although it was a late start, the gymnasts showed no sign of tiredness and put together some very good routines to come away with plenty of medals to show for efforts and dedication in training.

Medals won in the highest level of the day saw Lily Thompson claim bronze on vault and bars plus silver on floor in the under-12 age group and a brilliant bronze overall.

Darcy Orford also collected a gold medal for her outstanding vault.

Rebbecca Fones won a bronze medal on beam.

In the over 12 age group Maih Farrell got the silver on bars and Maddie Freeman went one better by executing a brilliant floor to take gold from a dominant Havering club.
