Young gymnasts from the Ribble Valley impressed at the British Gymnastics National Rhythmic Group Championships held in Fenton Manor, Stoke.

The Espoir hoop group finished with a top score of 7.943 in the second rotation, placing them sixth overall nationally.

And then the junior ball group performed exceptionally to register a personal best score which has placed them third going in to the second round to take place in October.

The girls out performed most of the top clubs in the country and hope to keep this up throughout the gymnastic season.

Espoir group: Olivia Cordeau, Lilly-Ella Smith, Lucy Rogers and Phoebe Metcalf.

Junior group: Phoebe Richardson, Olivia Blow, Alice Curran, Trinity Woodman and Caitlin Slater.
