A fantastic win for Cinderford in the Cotswold League Final B at Pontypool against 5 other teams, with very close racing throughout the excitement was palpable as the competition progressed. With the trophy for the top Club within reach all the swimmers put in solid performances and swam at their best, the atmosphere was buzzing and the noise was deafening at times with all the Clubs cheering their swimmers on.
The swimmers fought hard with the lead changing throughout the gala. It was a much-anticipated announcement that saw Cinderford finally beating worthy opponents Clevedon by just 1 point with Cheltenham Phoenix finishing in 3rd place, followed by Cheltenham SWP, Burnham and Bristol Penguins. Congratulations to all the swimmers who competed in the final and also the 4 rounds, you all did yourselves and the team credit.
