Huntingdon Gymnastics Club junior boys held onto Bronze at the u14 British Teams at New college, Leicester.

For the fourth year running HGC boys stay in the team medals.

Patrick Murphy (14) Harry O'Driscoll (13) Ali Hussien (13) Jake Jarman (12) Christian Norman (12) and Kian Bell (11) all competed brilliantly against a strong field of 9 teams. The boys carried a fall and some minor wobbles on their last piece, but all in all demonstrated a display of great effort, performance and team spirit. Hunts' boys were aiming for an achievable 284, their valiant efforts were rewarded with a team score of 281.700.

Pat Murphy was our top scorer with 73.800 in 5th then Jake in 11th with 72.450 from 47.

The boys produced a ten mark team improvement on last year’s Bronze medal result.

"I'm very impressed with the boys resolve and competitive mind-set against such strong competition", "this should bode well for the individual British in Glasgow in two weeks time" said Huntingdon's elite boys coach, Ben Howells.
