Our amazing Junior Jubilee Seals where last night crowned Central Lancashire Jubilee Champions 2018 after an exciting and close A Final at Oldham Sports Centre.
Seals - ORCA- Atherton & Leigh - Flixton
The atmosphere was buzzing as all four teams took part in the traditional pre gala parade to acknowledge their achievement of reaching the A Final. Banners , Sombreros , cowboy hats and Pom poms where all on show.
Once the formalities and warm up were complete it was down to Referee and Central Lancashire President John Hallwood to get the racing underway.
Seals got off to a shakey start falling well behind after five races with ORCA and Flixton taking up first and second places early on.
Seals showed great character and fought back to gain a slight 7 point lead at the mid way point with ORCA hot on our heels in second . Flixton in third and Atherton a Leigh in Forth place.
A two horse race had began for the championship as Seals and ORCA battled it out with the scores remaining close throughout the second half of the gala. Some of the swimming on show was nothing short of spectacular with all four teams giving it everything they had .
Strength in depth was key for Seals as important wins in most relays and especially the two cannons helped make sure Seals hung on for the Trophy.
A Massive well done to all our Jubilee Squad swimmers who have taken part in this successful campaign . We are very proud of each and everyone of you.
Well done to head coach Jo , team manager Craig , all pool side helpers and amazing Committee Members.
