A disappointing result in Central Lancs League, with a narrow defeat to Oldham in our first event of the new season, but still some excellent swims. Central Lancs times are here CLInterSO130919
The M&D team gala final last weekend was a tough introduction to this high caliber event, but the whole team should be proud of their efforts. Times are here MDASO220919
179 new PBs…that’s some early season start!
Close racing last night in our Double Header against both Wigan Wasps and Atherton & Leigh SC. The team just missed out to Wigan (143 v 175) but took the win against A&L (191 v 127).
Thanks to both sets of opponents and their supporters and of course Central Lancs for the superb competition.
