Merseyside Development League Gala 1

Congratulations to all who swam in the first Development Gala of 2015
Everyone who swam did exceptionally well and we came a very creditable 5th given that we did not enter quite a few races because of lack of swimmers in certain age groups.

The full Result was:
1st - Hoylake - 330
2nd - Prescot - 323
3rd - Ormskirk - 318
4th - Bridgefield - 293
5th - Formby - 285
6th - Crosby - 259

We also got 6 Speeding Tickets (see the article about Speeding Tickets for an explanation)

So we look forward to the Next one on July 19th.


New Guys Formby win the M&D League

Formby Swimming Club is delighted to be Champions of the Merseyside & District League Division 3 at the first time of asking. The fourth and final gala of the league season ended with another convincing victory for the club, winning the gala itself by 35 points and meaning that the club win the league by at our estimation a clear 85 points. Final standings in the league were Formby (1) 741 points, Runcorn (2) 656 points, Warrington (3) 645 Points, Bridgefield (4) 223 Points.


The club received its first ever trophies the other week (….month!). These are two superb awards from the Development Gala Series held at Knowsley Pool during 2014. These are for 2nd place in the Relays Overall and for 4th Place (out of 8) in the Overall Galas. Bearing in mind the number of speeding points we picked up these trophies represent some great awards.


We would like to thank those who attended the club’s second AGM last Thursday evening (26th). There were several upbeat reports from committee members and positive comments were received from non-committee attendees. The committee received no new nominations this year and votes were taken to retain the existing committee membership and positions. We would like to thank those who attended for coming along. The three named positions are therefore Steve Birtles (Secretary), Dave Colbourne (Treasurer) and Kevin Riley (Chairman).
