Your Champions: Wrexham Sporting Champion - Stephanie Collister

SCHOOLGIRL Stephanie Collister, of Burton, near Wrexham, was chosen as the Wrexham Chronicle’s winner of the Your Champions sport category.

Stephanie is currently ranked ninth in Great Britain at under- 17s level and first in Wales for her age group.

She is in the Great Britain cadet squad and has been invited to represent Wales at senior level following a year to remember.
