11th spot for Shropshire figure skater Darcy-Adele Lloyd

Shropshire figure skater Darcy-Adele Lloyd has finished 11th at the British Figure Skating Championships in Sheffield.

The 19-year old, who trains at Telford Ice Rink, became the town’s first figure skater to make the championships in about 20 years at the weekend.

Lloyd, who was competing in the senior ladies division, performed two different routines on Saturday and Sunday, but was unable to break into the top 10.

Her coach Jaquie Lloyd said: “She was very disappointed but it was a great achievement to get to the championships and it is a learning curve.”
