Garioch Gymnasts Club, based at the Garioch Community Centre in Inverurie have had a busy September with six of their gymnast travelling to Stoke for the Bill Slater team Championships.

The Bill Slater Team Championships is for Espoir and Junior age group gymnasts including some of the best young gymnasts in the country.

The Garioch Glitter Girls who took part were Joanne Lowe (15) from Strichen, Izzy Tolometti (15) from Alford, Daisy Willcocks (14) from Insch, Erin Fraser (12) from Inverurie, Leah Reid (11) from Kemnay and Brooke Masson (10) from Turriff. They travelled with their club coaches, Janine Robertson and Cathy Osborne.

The girls competed very well, remaining calm and professional throughout. They achieved a fabulous 11th place finish, with a score that was over eight points higher than last years. To add to the success Izzy Tolometti achieved a top five finish on the Asymmetric Bars.

A fabulous result for the girls, all at the club are very proud of their triumph, thank you to all the parents for their help with organising and who travelled with us to support the Glitter Girls!

• Garioch Gymnasts performed exceptionally well at the recent Voluntary Level 6 & 5 Competition in Perth.

The event crowned two new Scottish Champions from the Garioch club, Morgan James won the Level 6 12+ Years competition while Hannah Redfern took the crown in the Level 5 12/13 years.
