Thanks must go to our swimmers for their great performance. It was always going to be very difficult this year facing the strongest Yorkshire team to date.
Our team gave their all and fought for everything. To be second (a clear second at that) was a great achievement and the swimmers should hold their heads high. We are very proud of the whole team and the coaches and team staff feel exactly the same.
Team Captains Niamh Robinson and Matthew George did a stirling job in motivating the team.
Thanks to Mike Wilson and Adam Naylor, our team coaches, for their motivation, support and feedback to the team.
Our thanks also to Carolyn Dawe (Team Manager) and Joshua Thompson (team chaperone and motivator) for their work.
It has been noted by several people, including a FINA Referee from Essex about how gracious the Lancs Team were in applauding Yorkshire as they received their award.
The Red Rose WILL be back!!!!
5 September 2016 in Masters Competition Info
Congratulations to all those who took part in the Lancashire Masters Competition and a big thank you to the officials and helpers who facilitated the meet.
We are pleased to announce that the Lancashire County Masters will be held on Sunday 4th September at Blackpool Palatine Pool.
Session 1 warm up 9.00am start 9.45 am
Session 2 warm up 12.30 pm start 1.15 pm
Confirmed entries Lancashire Masters 2016
As ever, the competition will be open to the wider Masters community, from clubs not affiliated to Lancashire County.
The entry pack is available below.
It is with regret that we are having to cancel the Junior Meet scheduled for 2 July at Broughton.
This is by a majority decision from the Executive Committee. It is generally felt that the idea of a Junior Meet is great and is needed but as a leading County we do need to get it right or not do it at all. We need to have more clubs taking part so that we create a good atmosphere. Out of the few clubs that did enter only one entered the maximum 20 swimmers.
The Association will be staging a Level 3 “Junior” Meet at Broughton Pool Salford on Saturday 2nd July 2016.
The Meet is targeted at 9-12 year olds, who have not competed at this years County Championships.

Lancashire and North West Swimming are mourning the recent death of Referee Malcolm Wilson, following a short but brave battle against cancer.
Malcolm was a friend and mentor to so many within the swimming community, a true gentleman in whom there was no guile.
He has enriched the swimming world through his invaluable contribution over so many years, particularly in relation to the training and development of officials.
A past member of the Lancashire County Executive, Past President of Bolton & District S&WPA and a Life Member of the North Lancs Association, Malcolm will be greatly missed by his many friends in the swimming community.
We extend our heart felt condolences to Malcolm’s wife Vivien and his son and daughter.
Donations can be made in memory of Malcolm to either “Bolton Hospice” or “The Christie” Charity.
