Heroes coach Shirel Crossley, 24, Megan Small, 18 and Rachel Irving, 17, will all compete in the World Cheerleading Championships at the Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida, next year.

Shirel, who is also a member of the Leeds-based Aviator Lightning Squad, took Megan and Rachel along with her to try out for the squad.

Sean Crossley, from Heroes, said: “After two full days of training and try-outs which attracted a lot of interest from around the country, Megan and Rachel were also selected for the squad – all three will be going to the World Cheerleading Championships next year.

“This is a great achievement for the girls as there were more than 100 cheerleaders who tried out – and only 28 were chosen.

“We are all so excited and can't wait to represent Great Britain in the World Cheerleading Championships and put Carlisle on the map.

“They are campaigning at the moment to make cheerleading an Olympic sport – it would be fantastic if they did.

“With hard work and dedication Heroes can make dreams come true.”

The group, which used to meet in Trinity Church Hall on the corner of Wigton Road and Stanhope Road, is moving premises.

Sean said: “We are going to be based at Long Island Park, opposite Matalan and opposite the Texaco garage.

“Our new place is fully equipped with a top of the range Palmer springs sprung floor.”

The new classes start at the end of this month.
