Training is back on as normal from tonight (Thursday 2nd July) following repair of the chemical dosing system.
Northgate top Nuneaton League
Following another fantastic victory in round 3 on Saturday (27th June at Rugby) Northgate now go into the final on September 12th in top spot. We will be competing with Wombourne who are also unbeaten this season and so it will be a great battle for overall winner. The table going into the final is:-
Northgate 18 points
Kingsbury A 14
This points advantage gives us a good crack at winning promotion to division 1 in the final (top 4 to go up). If selected please make sure that you are available to swim.

Warm ups and approximate session times now on the Shropshire Championships page in Events.
National invitation for Cam
Big congratulations to Cameron Minifie, who has been invited to compete in the English Home Nations Championships in Sheffield this summer. She has qualified in the 50m and 200m butterfly in what will be her first individual national competition. Well done Cam!
Fab news coming from the Midlands age group championships – click here for details!
And well done to the Ross PGL League squad
. . . who finished seventh in the final in Northgate’s first season in the league. We even had seven speeding tickets for swimmers who proved to be too fast for the competition!
What a fabulous day!
Well done to all 50+ swimmers, parents and friends who took part in the Bridgnorth Walk today, especially those who did the full 22 miles and the climb up Brown Clee! It was an amazing effort from everyone, and we have hopefully raised a significant sum for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.
A selection of pictures from the day (sorry we couldn’t get everyone!) has now been added to the Bridgnorth Walk 2015 tab at the top of the page. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have other pictures to add to the gallery or if you need the password
It’s the final countdown . . . !
We’re (still) top of the league – and the Nuneaton Junior League squad are just one gala away from a place in the promotion final for the second year running! The third and final round is on June 27 at Rugby – if you are selected for the team, please make every effort to attend as every point could be vital.
Fab weekend at Midland Youth gala
Cameron and Jennie did the club proud at the Midland Youth Championships in Corby, with seven long course PBs from seven events. Cam also made three finals, finishing fourth in two and sixth in the other – breaking two club records in the process. Jen was a reserve for the 50m breaststroke final.
The pair were in exalted company - swimming for his City of Derby club at the championships was double world record holder Adam Peaty who, despite winding down from his starring role at the British Championships last week, gave a textbook demonstration of breaststroke swimming as well as helping out his team mates in the freestyle relay.
Senior land training . . .
. . . is ON on Saturday mornings in the small gym upstairs, 9.15am-10am. Open to all senior squad swimmers. Can anyone challenge Louise on the rope climb?
Well done Cam!
Cameron Minifie was the club’s sole representative at the Midlands distance championships at Coventry. Leading her 800m heat from start to finish, Cam recorded a big long course PB and bagged another long course club record to boot.
Dan Galloway, Elle Humphries, Cameron Minifie and Jennie Ballinger had a fantastic weekend at the Derventio level 1 meet in Sheffield. Daniel won a bronze medal, Elle gained two new Midlands times, Cam and Jennie consolidated their Midlands times and there were numerous PBs. The four swimmers also racked up no fewer than eight new long course club records between them.
The full list of long course records has now been uploaded to the members’ area – who else is going to get their name on the list?
SHORT COURSE PBs updated in the members’ section
** Huge thanks to everyone who helped with the bag pack, and to all the Sainsbury’s Bridgnorth shoppers who helped us raise more than £1,200 to be divided between club funds and the Cystic Fibrosis Trust **
All results can now be viewed on the PB Buster page
