Matlock & District Swimming Club hosted a very successful novice gala on Saturday.

The event at Arc Leisure Matlock was open to swimmers who will not yet have reached their 12th birthday by December 31. Matlock managed to field four competitors in many events, testament to the strength in depth they have developed among younger swimmers. The competition was also attended by Cheadle, Radford and Derby Phoenix.

Among home swimmers, many were attending a competitive gala for the first time and they and others produced excellent swims that bode well for the club’s future competitiveness. Matlock’s A Team beat Derby Phoenix into second on a night of great excitement.
