THE search is on to find dancers to support Widnes Vikings.

Three teams of cheerleaders are looking for new members.

It’s a chance for anyone aged five to 18 to get fit, have fun and back the players.

Cheerleading coach Sharon Denmade Neeves, aged 43, of Hough Green Road, said: “I love watching Widnes. I’ve been a fan for years.

“It would be helpful if the older girls have a dance or gymnastic background. We can train the younger ones.

“They will learn pitch side chants and cheers.”

Sharon, who runs a dance shop in Queens Avenue, took over the squads two years ago.

Auditions are being held on Saturday, January 18, at St Basil’s Club in Hough Green Road, at 9.30am for five to 10-year-olds, 11am for 11-14-year-olds and 12.30pm for those aged 15-18.

Dancers can e-mail or visit the Vikings Superstore at Tesco, Widnes for an application form.
