European medal for Daniel
Huge congratulations to senior squad swimmer Daniel Galloway, who won a silver medal while representing Great Britain in the third Biathle World Tour event of the year in Setubal’s Parc Urbano de Albarquel in Portugal.
Dan, 10, was part of a British 1-2-3 in the youth D section of the competition as GB dominated the event, which involves a run-swim-run.
In total, the squad won 24 medals – eight gold, 10 silver and six bronze -from a field of more than 250 competitors.
Dan is Northgate’s second biathle international – last year, Matt Griffiths won team gold and individual silver in the world championships in Guatemala.

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.
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!

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 email@example.com if you have other pictures to add to the gallery or if you need the password
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.
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.
