YOUNG skating star Danielle Harrison will travel to Aberdeen this weekend to represent England in the National Ice Skating Association Cup.

The 10-year-old secured her place at a qualifying event at Telford, which was open to level seven and above skaters of any age.

Harrison is one of 11 English skaters who will compete against skaters from all the home nations.

The Castle Hill Junior School pupil is a member of the Regional Development Pathway team that recently won the Romford Open and finished second in the Bristol Open.

Harrison started skating lessons in March 2006 and is coached by Jenny Woolford at Basingstoke Arena. She also receives a great deal of training from RAD registered dance teacher Lisa Beaumont.
