In the third round of this year’s competition third-seeded Stretford stormed to victory against some stiff opposition at Horwich on Saturday 10th December.
Great swimming by all the team gave us an early lead and at the halfway mark we were eight points ahead of second-placed Lancaster. It was very close in the final stages but Stretford swimmers maintained their focus to take first place in the final gala of the year. Chief coach Rob was delighted with the result and congratulated the swimmers on a fine performance.
WELL DONE EVERYONE!
Final positions and points:
Bury and Elton 155

Our Christmas Disco was held at Trafford Social Club and was well attended. Everyone enjoyed some great food, games and prizes, disco dancing and even a visit from Santa.
The first Annual Margaret Turnbull Awards were presented to the boy and girl who had demonstrated, throughout the previous year, a winning combination of positive attitude, commitment, good behaviour, attendance and consistency in striving for self-improvement. Congratulations therefore to Jenny Levenston and Mark Ashton for their achievements– thoroughly well deserved.
