Guildford City’s youngsters were in inspiring form at last weekend’s ASA South East Region Age Group Championships at K2 Crawley.
Winning medals galore and NQTs across the board Chief Coach Richard Garfield remarked, ‘I am incredibly proud of all the swimmers who participated and their coaches. These are probably the best results we have ever had at the Age Group Championships. Our committee and the parents should also be thanked for their support.’
