Victory in round 1 of Arena League

A great performance from the swim team saw them win round 1 of this season’s National Arena League North West.

After last season’s promotion from Division 2, the team showed they are ready for life in Division 1 with a fantastic, battling display to pip a very strong Prescot team.

Every age group contributed to the win leaving the Stretford fans ecstatic.

Water Polo update

U16s
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.

U14

U14 have had mixed results in their last few matches, they beat Chester at home comfortably but then lost away at Radcliffe the following day. They lost against Tyldsley at home on Saturday but then had a convincing win away against Liverpool on the Sunday.
U12s
The U12s have been playing friendlies this year due to a shortage of players. The team will finish the season with a much larger and strengthened squad.

Greater Manchester Autumn Meet Report

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.
