Wyre Forest Swimming Club
A BRILLIANT series of gala wins and promotion saw Wyre Forest Swimming Club win the junior team of the year award. The club's juniors won nine out of 10 galas and promotion to the Nuneaton League Division One after victory in the final. The swimmers also reached the final of the Ross Junior League, where they were narrowly edged out. Chairman Peter Barnett believes the club's unprecedented success was down to a new training programme, which has got the best out of its 180-strong junior section. "The new training techniques we've introduced have made a big difference and have meant a brilliant year for the club. "It means a lot to have the achievements of our dedicated group recognised." Members keep themselves in the swim by training at Stourport Sports Centre and Holy Trinity School between two and six times a week.
