City of Hereford Swimming Club race to second place at Tewkesbury Gala
12:30pm Wednesday 2nd October 2013 in Sport
DESPITE illness depleting their young squad, City of Hereford Swimming Club took second place in the Tewkesbury Gala.
Hereford were up against competition from Gloucester, Tewkesbury and Cinderford swimming clubs and, to replace the missing members, the city swimmers took on extra races and often swam up an age group with some gutsy performances.
Nine-year-old Josh Gough showed off his fly technique to produce a convincing win in the 25m race while Morgan Wells, 10, also swam his way to victory in the 50m backstroke.
“Successes for the city's swimming squad at British and Welsh Nationals this year have been a great inspiration to these younger swimmers,” said head coach Alex Dallimore. “They are now keen to train hard as they begin the new season and look ahead to more competitions.”
Any young swimmers interested in developing their skills and fitness at City of Hereford Swimming Club should e-mail Dallimore on headcoach@swim hereford.co.uk.
