Water Polo update
It’s been a varied week for the U16s this week. Chester decided to concede their fixture, feeling it would be too unbalanced. A friendly with mixed up teams was played instead.
A fixture against Bridgefield, Liverpool resulted in a 15-10 win, with Stretford pulling away towards the end after a pretty close first half.
The U16s remain unbeaten this season.

Well done to all the swimmers who competed in the Greater Manchester Autumn Meet at the Wigan Life Centre over the last two weekends. There were a host of PBs, medals (61) and County Championship consideration times achieved.
For the first competitive gala of the season it was incredible to see that 71% of swims over the two weekends were PBs, a reward for the hard work being put in in training.
