A St Albans woman has won silver at the European Ultimate Frisbee Championships in Limerick.

The event was held between July 15 and July 22, and saw St Albans frisbee player Hannah Yorwerth claim silver as part of the Great British team.

Following semi-final victory over Italy, the Brits were narrowly defeated by Germany in the final.

Hannah spoke of her relief at finally getting a chance to represent her country at senior level.

She said: "It was fantastic to be able to compete with the GB senior women’s team after such a long wait.
