After getting to the top club team event event in the country for the first time in the clubs 140 year history, the swimmers did themseleves proud, The atmosphere was fantastic at the 10 lane 50m, Cardiff International Pool with horns flags and face paint. The instruction to the swimmers was just “Enjoy yourselves and the occasion” The club drew back some of the older swimmers to swim in the open events who were apart of the team who won the National Junior Title back in 2009 and 2010. They all, also enjoyed competing at that level yet again. Southport were by far the smallest club there with only 130 competitive members compared to some big city teams. The team didnt let themselves down finishing in joint 8th position. What an occasion for the club with the prestige of making the final and having our clubs name in head lines on the Swim England Website yet again.
