Celtic's at Future Cheer Internationals 2008


On the 5th July the Celtics infamous Co-ed Group stunt, featuring Rachel, Tats, James, Tim and Carly once again wowed the crowd at The Brighton Centre. Before they even began their stunt sequence the group were welcomed with thunderous applause, the audience were eager to see what the Celtics had come up with this year! As always the team gave the audience what they wanted. They effortlessly pulled off a routine that included stunts never mastered in a British competition before. The double cupie, the Arabian spilt full basket and the double up to liberty were received with rapturous applause and the practically flawless score sheet saw the group receive their 16th 1st place trophy. Congratulations to all involved.

At 6am the next the day the rest of the Celtic Family set off from Leeds to make their way to Brighton. After a five-hour journey the team were reunited. The Celtics have competed with an all girl team and a co-ed team all year but as this competition was in the university holidays many members were not able to perform and so the teams merged to become one Co-ed Level five team. Obviously a new routine had to be formed in very little time and with only having one weekend to properly practice the routine due to exams and team members moving home, as well as a serious injury on the day, the nerves were showing.

The Celtics were first on the mat in their division, adding to the pressure they already felt but they enjoyed and appreciated the big welcome they received from the crowd. The Celtics performed a technically difficult routine, which involved very advanced level 5 and co-ed stunts. The Celtics are known as ambassadors of University cheerleading and constantly thrive to raise the bar of UK cheerleading and push themselves to be the best. The Celtics do not opt for easy sequences and the safe stretches, we strive to be at the very top of the level we compete at, which means there is more danger of making mistakes. The Celtics proved how talented their team was by performing the most advanced stunts in their division and came home with a 3rd place trophy. Although some may say we should lower our stunting level to make sure we are consistent, we know we can do these stunts and stick them due to the enormous talent we have on our team and therefore our philosophy will not change. Watch out for the Celtics at ICC Nations Best as they continue to raise the bar for University cheerleading.
