Prescot Swimming Clubs big weekend

Recent events have seen Prescot Swimming Club take to the pool for two finals in two days of competition.

Team manager, Simon Deeley, said: “On Saturday evening we travelled to Rochdale for the Division 1 North West Arena League final against Barrow, Horwich, Carlisle, Biddulph and Halton.

“With a weakened team due to illness and absences it was going to be a tough gala for Prescot but the team spirit and hard work all paid off with the lead between Prescot, Barrow and Horwich changing hands several times before end.

“The gala was a noisy affair and the support shown to all teams made for a fantastic nights swimming, the final result saw Prescot coming a close third (177pts) behind winners Barrow (195pts) and Horwich (192pts) and clinching promotion to the Premier Division for 2016.

“The Prescot swimmers were also awarded the Presidents Trophy for the best supported team.
“Sunday saw a Prescot development team take part in the final City of Liverpool Development League Gala at Knowsley Leisure and Culture Park.

“Prescot were leading the table by just four points from Hoylake after four rounds and again it was a close gala.

“Prescot ran into a 20-point lead from Hoylake after the first 10 events but as the gala progressed the points difference reduced each time till after 50 events the lead was just one point.

“It all hinged on the final relays and the girls and boys team pulled out all the stops to win both cannon events and take the gala by just four points from a great Hoylake team.

“In the end Prescot took both the relay trophy for accumulating the most points in the relays and the overall trophy for winning the league by eight points”.

This capped a great weekend for the club who train at Knowsley Leisure & Culture Park and Parr Pools.
