NASL NW Premier League – R2

Another superb effort from the team in R2 sees us just miss out for Champioship Final by a couple of places, finishing 10th.  That means we face the prospect of the relegation swim off.  Top ranked team is Wrexham, we’re seeded no 2 and we’ll be up against City of Stoke (Cosacss), Blackpool Aquatic, Iske of Man, Trafford Metro, Horwich and Pioneer 70.

Swimmer times from R2 are here: NASL NW Premier R2

National Arena Swim League

Round 1

Awesome result from the team last Saturday. 5th place may mean a relegation dog fight in R3, but it was wonderful to see the whole team supporting each other and determination in the pool scrapping for every point.
As a Club, we’re punching above our weight in Premier Division, but it showed the coaching and hard training is paying off.

Overall after the first round we’re 10th overall and will be up against it in R2 (November) v Stockport, Southport, Salford, Stoke, Wrexham, Winsford and Hirwich.
