Stables, from both her national finals results, compulsory and voluntary, has finished the year with a national ranking of 22nd.

Level three was again a strong level of competition with the south east team placing a very creditable fourth. This competition saw Stocker place 26th overall and Lees eighth overall as well as 10th on bars and eighth on beam.

The girls contributed great scores towards the team total with nearly all their scores improved upon from the regional championships.

The pair as they competed at both national final events, compulsory and voluntary, finished with a combined score which reflects their national ranking - Stocker placed 18th and Lees sixth.

The British Championships is for gymnasts who have not passed their compulsory level grades and saw a high-class field including European, GB and England squad members.

A few falls kept her overall position down to 35th overall, although South put in a steady performance on floor and finished with a magnificent vault, scoring 12.65, for a silver medal.

She went on to compete the following day in the Bill McLoughlin National Team Championships.

South - who had two solid vaults and one fall on the beam - was a member of the south east team who placed 10th.
