Our swim teams have done well in two recent galas, staging late rallies to surge into the top two places.
On Friday night (4 May) our development squad won the first of this season’s Borough Development galas against our Trafford neighbours – Flixton, Altrincham and Trafford Metro. From sitting in fourth place at the halfway stage some great swims saw the team finish on top claiming the first trophy of the season.
And the week before we all but secured a place in the Manchester and District Programme A Final by finishing second to Glossop after another late rally. The final will be in September – look out for details.
