WORCESTERSHIRE Gymnastics Academy sent 26 squad members to compete in Cannock at the West Midlands Novice Championships.

They performed on all four pieces and for many of the gymnasts it was their first regional event but all performed well.

Isobel Ashley won overall gold in the intermediate section.

Rosa Parsons, Florence Elsworth and Mia Philips claimed rosettes for finishing in the top five places in the 10 to 12 years beginner level against 70 others.

The squad took far more gymnasts to compete at the regional championships than last year.
