Deeside Synchronised Ice Skating Club was delighted to attend the Britannia Cup from 11-13 January 2020, resulting in a historic double win for the club as both Welsh and British Champions in the same year!
The Club’s four teams performed fantastically, with the Deelites winning Gold in the Intermediate category, making them British champions. The Angels similarly performed brilliantly, securing 4th place in the Juvenile category.
The Cherubs, performing and competing for the first time in the Beginner’s category, secured a fantastic 4th place; and the Halos, also performing for the first time in the Adult category, had an impressive start to the season, placing 11th overall.
Darell Jones, Chairperson for the Club, expressed his enthusiasm, saying: “I’m so proud and privileged to be part of such a friendly and professional club that develops, encourages and enhances young talent in such a positive way. I’d like to thank our sponsors Gardner Aerospace and Aura Leisure and Libraries, for their continued support.”
Head Coach, Vicki Usherwood, similarly expressed her thanks and delight about the Club’s performance, saying: “This achievement is three years of commitment, dedication and determination. These skaters have come through our development programme and have proven what dedication and practice can achieve. They keep moving from strength to strength!”
All four teams will be competing at the Scottish International Trophy d’Ecosse in Dumfries, early in February, with high hopes of bringing further victories back to Deeside Ice Rink.
The whole Aura team would like to congratulate the Club on its fantastic achievements and wish them the best of luck in their upcoming competition.
