Lancashire Team Finish Second at Inter- County Team Competition

24 October 2016 in Swimming Competition Info

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!!!!

Malcolm Wilson

21 February 2016 in Uncategorized

IMAG0806_BURST002_COVERLancashire 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.
