Alicia was touted as a hot prospect after winning 1m Springboard gold as a 13-year old at the 2010 British Gas National Cup. She went on to compete in the 1m and 3m Springboard events as well as the 3m Synchro at the European Championships in Budapest before winning 1m gold, 3m bronze and 3m Synchro silver at the 2010 British Gas Diving Championships. Alicia was handed her Commonwealth debut the same season, finishing eighth in the 1m, 10th in the 3m and fourth competing with City of Leeds teammate Rebecca Gallantree in the 3m Synchro. She won her first Grand Prix medal in 2011, again combining with Rebecca for 3m Synchro silver in Fort Lauderdale, before making her World Championship debut in Shanghai. The pair continued to improve in 2012, setting a personal best 302.40 to qualify second for the European Championship final before ultimately finishing fifth.
