Caroline Findlay writes: On Saturday 8 Feb a coach load of swimmers, some experienced, others less so, headed to Dorking to take part in the Moyce cup.
An early arrival even left enough time for a quick game of football before the team took to the pool to compete. After 13 fast paced races Leander lead by 3 points. Next followed the close-fought relays after which the lead had shrunk to 2 points… Lots of cheering through the last few races meant that the final score showed that Leander won by 18 points!
I would like to thank Fiona and John for coming along to officiate, and the swimmers for behaving so well and cheering their team mates on. Well done!

Lorraine Colfer writes: What an exciting night. There are 23 teams in our Division and we made it through to the Final 8, that’s impressive for our first time in the league for years. We were up against Hillingdon, Team Luton A and Basildon & Phoenix to name but a few, those of you who attend the London Youth Games will know of Hillingdon’s fearsome reputation already.
There were some fantastic swims and great team spirit throughout the evening. We finished in 6th place, which is a fantastic effort from all the team, especially those who had to swim-up an age group. A special mention must go to Reiss Ormonde-Cunningham and Imogen Marcar – our only first places on the night – it really was that tough. Continue reading
