They then had three strong wins against some tough opponents to the win the plate in extra time.

Erica’s mum Rachel Morey told the Comet: “It was a long trip up to Sheffield but worth the drive to see the children do so well.

“We are so proud of Erica and all her teammates. We are delighted for them.

“A big thank you to the teachers and everyone else who came.”
