Matrix have recently taken the bronze medal in the European Cheerleading Championships in Slovenia.

The junior co-ed stunt team who qualified after coming first in the UKCA National Championships travelled to Llubjlana on July 4th to compete against the best in Europe.

They were joined by other UK teams such as Rising Stars, Hawks Cheer Team, STCA, Wild Spirit Angels and Warwick Devils.

The team, that consisted of Rebecca Swansbury, Tash Kirkwood, Jessy Clews, Madaline Heywood and Ashley Grice, were amazed by the standard of the other European teams from countries such as Norway, Finland, Germany and Russia.

But they managed after a gruelling schedule of travelling and practising to take third place in the competition.

Coach Leanne said :”We had an amazing weekend. The whole experience of travelling there, competing and just meeting new cheer friends was brilliant. To be a part of something so great had given us fresh ideas and more determination to try to be back here next year.

“I just wanna say say well done to all the other other UK teams who competed out there!”
