Carys Verdicchio made her first appearance at a National League Gala a memorable one.

The eight -year-old, a member of Rotations Trampolining Club, collected a bronze medal in the Girls 9-10yrs League Three category at the event in Burgess Hill, West Sussex.

Hannah Morris (13) and Kathryn Morson (16) also sampled their first national event and delivered fine performances.

Morris narrowly missed out on a medal when finishing fourth in the Girls 13-14yrs League Three group.

Morson also occupied fourth place in the Double Mini-Tramp 15-16yrs League Three competition.

All three local talents are hopeful of securing qualification for the National League Gala finals to be held at the Copper Box Arena in London which was a venue for the handball and fencing competitions during the 2012 Olympic Games.
