A CHEERLEADING team has gone from strength to strength since winning a prize at the City of Worcester Sport Awards.

Last September, the Worcester Sinners won the Higher Education and Further Education Award, which recognises any individual or club who has made a significant contribution to physical activity and sport in those areas.

Following on from the awards, the Sinners – who are based at the University of Worcester and made up of students – have achieved more success. 

They have attended four competitions and achieved two first places, one second and one third.

On April 24 the Sinners competed against their rival the University of Gloucestershire in the annual varsity cheerleading competition and, for the third consecutive year, Worcester was victorious.

Freedom Leisure, which organises the City of Worcester Sport Awards, wants the Sinners' story to inspire people to nominate teams and individuals for a prize.

Matthew Rogers, Freedom Leisure active communities manager, said: “We know Worcester is full of great sporting talent, inspiring stories and dedicated coaches, athletes and clubs, and we can’t wait to showcase these at the 15th annual City of Worcester Sport Awards evening.”

 “So if you know any local sporting heroes who have shown great dedication since August 2017, then show them the recognition they deserve by nominating!”
