Gymnastics: GB team call-ups for Deerness Valley starlets – Grassroots – Sport – ChronicleLive

FOUR Newcastle gymnasts are among those flying the North East flag at this week’s European Senior and Junior Acrobatics Championships.

A 15-strong party from Durham’s Deerness Valley Gymnastics Club will be representing Great Britain at the event, in Varna, Bulgaria, which started yesterday and runs until Saturday.

It includes Dorian Walker, who studies at Newcastle University, Joe Charman and Conrad Dempsey from Northumbria University and Michael Gill of the city’s Royal Grammar School.

The acro-gymnasts are all aged between 12 and 21.

Deerness Valley gymnasts make up nearly half of the Great Britain team and were selected following national trials held earlier this year.

Four of the senior squad of 15 and 11 of the junior squad of 22 are from the Ushaw Moor-based club.

The senior gymnasts in the men’s group are Jesse Heskett (17) from Sunderland, Matthew Evison (19) from Esh Winning, Walker (21) from Durham City and Richard Hurst (21) from Esh Winning.
