M&D Team Gala 11th June

Whilst the overall result was a disappointment, finishing fourth, we were up against all three of our excellent Trafford Borough opponents for the first time in M&D this season.

We’ve beaten them before earlier this season in this gala and racing is so close between all the four teams, it could quite easily be a different result if we raced next week.  Nevertheless, excellent times again from both established and new members of the team, the details of which are found in the link below.

Trafford Development Gala 5.05.17

An exciting night of swimming at our pool on Friday, in the second Trafford Development Gala of the year.  The lead changed hands throughout the event; we lead early on, picked back the lead mid-way from Trafford Metro, but were ultimately overhauled after a couple of DQ’s and Speeding Tickets by Flixton Swim Team.  A fantastic effort by all our swimmers and feedback from the other clubs suggests it is the best gala of the year so far.  Well done.  Swimmer times are below and the result was:

Flixton Swim Team 76; Trafford Metro 67; Stretford 64; Altrincham 60.

Central Lancs Intermediate League: Atherton & Leigh

An exciting gala on Thursday night at Leigh Sports Village.  Whilst we were short of younger boy swimmers, so could not pick up points in the relays and the odd individual race, the team performed superbly well, just being beaten by 11 points: 165 v 154

Rossall 2017

“The Best Rossall Yet!”

Well, let’s be honest, somebody always says that and it was another fantastic week at camp, with all swimmers putting in massive effort at each of their nine swimming sessions throughout the week and the daily gym sessions.

Thanks to everybody, swimmers coaches and volunteers for your support over the week.  Results from the gala appear below.

It was great to hear the reaction from the Rossall camp, when telling them Zoe had been officially appointed as our Assistant Coach.  51 happy campers.
