And they returned with a new European champion to add to the four already at the club and two silver medals, a haul that would have placed them 16th out of 28 nations, above France and Switzerland.

The club will now turn their attention to the World Championships in July, hoping to build on the European Championships.

Thaxted Dragons train in Bolford Street Hall, Thaxted every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. For more details contact Barry Healy on 07522 067 436 or see their facebook page.
