Team Managers Report - Diddy League Rd 3 17th June

Posted on June 23, 2017 at 10:40 AM

In the final Diddy Gala of 2017 we came an undeserved 5th.   We had some very strong individual wins particularly on Butterfly from Molly and Alfie. Jade produced a great swim on the backstroke to take first place. We did equally well on the relays but the boys under 11 produced a stunning performance to win their relays in commanding style – In one race more than half a length ahead.

Team Managers Report - Diddy League Rd2 13th May

Posted on May 14, 2017 at 3:15 PM

Last night we came 4 out of 5 teams at the second Diddy Gala at Burton. The team did a great job, in a hot, cheery and well support event. You can really see that the swimmers are coming on Bethany Willingham’s diving and freestyle is almost unrecognisable from six months ago.

Team Report: Diddy Gala 1st April

Lawrence Robinson: Posted on 03 April 2017 21:09

At the first of three Diddy Galas we came 5th, quite some way behind the leading teams. That said it was a great night we had many swimmers swimming competitively for the first time. Although their inexperience showed it was a joy to witness their excitement and enthusiasm particularly after they had swam their first race.
