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!!!!
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.
Licence Number 3NW161064
