Boys team takes gold, girls third at M&D Prog B Final

Stretford’s boys’ team stormed to gold and the girls’ team secured third place in the Manchester and District Programme B Final at Sale Leisure Centre tonight (Saturday 10 March).

Competing against Trafford Metro, Glossop, Horwich and Flixton in the event for competitors aged 13 and over,  Stretford swimmers put in fantastic performances in both individual and relay events  victory.

Their efforts weren’t quite enough to take the overall team title, though. That went to our neighbours Trafford Metro, with Horwich second and Stretford third.

Well done everyone!

Swim team secures historic league title

Stretford Amateur Swimming Club has stormed to a divisional title in the regional section of the National Arena Swimming League.

The club, which celebrates its 130th anniversary in 2018, secured the North West Division Two title with a dominant display in the final at Lower Broughton Leisure Centre on Saturday (9 December).

Having won the first two rounds of this year’s divisional galas, Stretford went into the final as firm favourites against teams from Lancaster, Chorley, Oswestry, Kendal and Northwich.

And they didn’t disappoint, securing the first divisional title in the club’s history by a winning margin of 60 points.

Stretford Head Coach Tom Pope said: “It was a huge result for the club. Although we’ve achieved promotion in the National Arena League before, the club has never won a divisional title. I’m so proud of this group of swimmers. The fantastic efforts they’ve been making in training are really paying off and they’ve bonded into such a strong team. It really bodes well for the future of the club and we’re really looking forward to competing in Division One next year.”
