Saturday 19th May was the turn of the second round of the Derby and Notts League. After a very close and hard-fought win in the first round, Bramcote needed a good performance to attain a place in the ‘A’ final once again; and did not disappoint.
An early challenge came from Radford, who had a very strong second place finish in their first round, but Bramcote swimmers’ showed their speed and strength to pull far away from the rest of the competition to win the gala by a fantastic 52 points!
It may sound like a cliché to say that it was a fantastic performance, but again with a couple of swimmers missing, the swimmers swam their hearts out to achieve the final result which they thoroughly deserved!
- Bramcote – 238
- Radford – 186
- Nottingham Leander B – 171
- Derby Phoenix – 160
- Belper Marlins A – 143
- Worksop – 73
With the rest of the league results in, Bramcote sit in second place; only behind City of Derby A. For the past two years after Round 2, Bramcote has snuck into the top 6 (and therefore the A final) by just gala points rather than outright on league points. We have a real opportunity this year to finish a high as possible for a very long time! The final round is on Saturday 23rd June, at our home pool Bramcote LC; so please come down and support the team and show everyone just what a great club we are!
The Round 3 opponents are: City of Derby A, Nottingham Leander A, Sherwood, CABSC and Radford.
