Boston United’s United Cheer Team (UCT) has won nine awards – three of them first places – at the recent ICE Street, Cheer and General Dancing event.

The team also scooped the coveted Spirit Award for sportsmanship, encouragement and support.

The first time they had entered the competition, UCT entered nine stunt teams, some of which had never competed before.

UCT Sparkles, UCT Diamonds and UCT Jets received first place, while UCT Glitters, UCT Pearls, UCT Opals and UCT Gems all received second place. UCT Crystals received third place and UCT Moonstones fourth place.

“Winning the Spirit Award has shown what a fantastic supportive squad we are,” said head coach Nicola Drummond. “Everyone involved had a great day and came away feeling very pleased with their results.

“We’d like to thank everyone involved, and well done.”
