Their first competition was the Annual Broadwood Booster, now in its 21st year.

Gymnasts from all over the country converged on the Broadwood Gymnastic Academy, where the Cumbernauld club is based, to compete in what is a very popular competition.

And there was plenty of success for the home club to enjoy with Cumbernauld members collecting medals and high placings in a number of different categories and age groups.

In the Level 6 nine years category, Sophie Frater was first, collecting the trophy and gold medal.

Team mates Maia MacAloney won silver after finishing second, Emily Fraser took bronze for coming third and Ellyn Binnie got the fifth place ribbon.

In the same category for the 10/11 years age group silver and bronze medals were awarded to Sophie Craig and Nikki McKee respectively,

Team mate Megan Cameron was first overall in the Level 5 for nine years her reward was a trophy and a gold medal.

Again in the Level 5 for 10/11 years the Cumbernauld club was still collecting the medals with Niamh O’Rourke taking bronze and Millie Bell securing the special pink medal for finishing in fourth place.

Still on Level 5, at 12/13 years, Isabella Knox was the clear winner in this category, receiving the trophy and gold medal.

There was more to come in the advanced Level 3 section for 13 years plus.

Jessica Curle, Katie Martin, Mia Paterson and Rachel Thomson outdid all other competitors by winning first, second, third and fourth places all round, bringing more medals and another trophy for the home club.

Club coaches were well rewarded for their hard work also with such great results.
