We would like to congratulate all of you on your behavior, cheering, team spirit, swimming, and most importantly, winning the National Junior League Northern Final. You were all ace and we are very proud of you.
This is the eighth time we have won the Northern Final following victories in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2016, 2017, and 2018.
The team achieved a whopping 39 first place finishes (7 more than last year). Back to hard training now, ready to put up a fight in the National Final on 24 th November in Corby. It was great to see all the parents having so much fun on the balcony as you cheered for your team. Thank you for all the support you gave to each of the swimmers. Let’s see if we can go to the final with not just the best swimmers, but the best supporters as well.
The team would like to thank Kim Mathias and Joe Stott for their fantastic team management, and also David Broome, Jackie Broome and Andy Williams for their help on the day. Good luck to City of Leeds, Leamington Spa, Stockport Metro and Southport who move forward to the National Final in November.
The team for the National Final will be announced soon.
Well done, everyone!
