Well done to our older swimmers finishing third in this season’s Prog B final, behind Glossop and champions Trafford Mets. A tremendous competition on Sale last Sunday saw many new PBs and our team finishing in front of local rivals Flixton (4th) and Altrincham (5th).
The full result is now published on the M&D Swimming website and it’s great to be able to report that our Boys team won their competition, beating Trafford Mets into second place by 7 points. Well done guys:

What a great weekend of swimming in this season’s Club Championships. The third oldest championship record broken by Erin H by 1/100th of a second (Clare Crewdson’s 1983 100m Butterfly) amongst 20 other new records set. Asking around after the event, there was nobody to recall 21 records going in a single Championships. Nearly every swimmer set at least 1 PB during the event, near enough 70% of swims being new best times.
