Cheerleaders from Sheffield’s Universities will pit their skills against the best in the country in a national competition tomorrow.

The 32-girl Hallam University Diamond Squad will be pulling off a routine involving stunts, jumps, tumbles and dance, plus a hip-hop number during the University National Championships at Leeds University.

They compete against teams from universities from around the country including Sheffield University rivals, The Sabrecats.

Diamond Squad coach Suzanne O’Hara, aged 20, said: “We’ve trained really hard and just can’t wait to get out there and show all the other teams what we’re made of!”
