Burnley’s Felicity Pickard says she has taken a lot of confidence from her experience in the European Para Table Tennis Championships in Lasko, Slovenia.

The 23-year-old went out at the group stages of the women’s class six singles competition following 3-1 defeats to experienced Romanian Gabriela Constantin and Ukraine’s Maryna Lytovchenko.

“I thought I played well in parts,” she said. “It has given me a lot of confidence going forward. I’ve just got to build from this.

“I’ve got to work hard now and I know what I need to work on and I’m not far off - it’s just about those little margins and then I think I’ll be up there.”
