A large team of swimmers competed swimming against Market Drayton, Buxton and Telford Aqua at Cheslyn Hay Leisure Centre. To cut a long story short...

WE WON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There were superb swims from everybody – for some this was their first gala so there were nerves aplenty, but at the end of the day we came through. 

I think everybody agrees that Dan Turner’s swims were truly inspirational proving that age is but a number! We did have a few disqualifications but we still won by 20 points, so well done everybody – it was a great night!!!!!

The next round is at Buxton on 23rd of April with the final round at Market Drayton on 4th June



After not enough hours sleep, some 20 swimmers then gathered at Wrexham the next day for this popular gala. It went on all day and evening but by the end of it we had medals in abundance. Luke Carty and Maddie Nicholson finished runners up in their respective age groups and as a team we came 3rd overall. There were also some impressive swims with numerous PB’s. A long but good day was had by all.

Thanks go to all the people that helped over the 2 days – Lucas Edge, Robert Greenwood, Andy Nicholson and Tracey Fox on Saturday and Debbie and Ken on Sunday (who also judged Saturday and passed his exam in the process).

Thanks also to all the coaches that give up their time to coach you all – Steve, John, Emma, Sara, Dan, James, Howard, Richard, Emma and Lukas.

Also to Martin for inputting all the gala entries and Andy for updating all the PB’s afterwards.

As well as the parents for all their endless transportation to training and galas and obviously the most important ones.....

THE SWIMMERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It is a true Team Effort
