This site is now the home of our Gala Results and article archives.

We launched a new website in early 2022.  Take a look here.

 In contrast to recent years, there was a definite male-predominance in our team, and we had a record 9 relay entries, one of which yielded our only gold. Sadly our 160+ mixed 400 free team, of which we had high hopes, had to be withdrawn due to injury, otherwise that would almost certainly have been another gold; maybe next year!


There was a great team spirit and plenty of personal bests, even if not all resulted in medals or top 10s - so much so that some suggested the south pool should be measured! Maybe that infamous "fast water", is getting faster, or maybe it's the new coaching team? Special mention to Simon Kerrigan who "pb'd" in all his events (2nd career times), but despite that, missed out on a medal for the first time gaining three 4th places- unlucky! There was great interest in the men's 4x200 free, with Simon having not raced 200 free for 20 years and Alistair Crawford hadn't since 1994. Both did well and Alistair just missed dipping under 2mins. Ryan Borthwick stormed the last leg in 1:55:81, despite a very busy programme, but couldn't quite big the bronze. Despite generously giving the leading team half a second extra head-start with his casual take-over, Alistair Crawford managed to overhaul them on the last leg of the 4x50 free, with a 22:85-GOLD! Well done Andrew Walton, Mbeh Tanji and Ryan Borthwick- British Champions. Mbeh and Ryan also played their part with Carla McWilliams and Lizzie Bentley in bagging a silver in the 72+ 200 Medley relay.
