The winner for the first award in January 2018 is Club Captain 17 yrs old Holly Jones who has been excellent all through the month and has managed not to be ill !!! Well done to Annabel Blainey who ticked all the boxes to be Swimmer of The Month for February !!! Attendance / Application / Attitude and Achievement in winning 100 Metre County Breaststroke Event in a personal best time as well. Adam has had an excellent month in training in March following on from successful County Championships where he made numerous finals and qualified for the 2018 Midlands District Championships. Well Done Adam keep up the good work !!! Well done to Nathan Walker who has really been working hard recently ticked all the three boxes below and been rewarded with seven top three finishes at Stocksbridge Open Meet Ponds Forge Sheffield plus an excellent fifth place Long Course 400 I.M. at the Midlands Regionals Championships last week. Attendance *** Attitude *** Achievement *** Zara is deservedly Swimmer Of The Month for May her effort and attendance has been excellent. Zara is a four stroke swimmer with all her strokes improving and is learning quickly how to train properly to make the most of her undoubted ability. I am looking forward to watching Zara swim in the Biddulph Open Meet where I am sure she will do very well. Well Done Zara keep up the good work !!! Well done to Daisy for being awarded swimmer of the month for June - I will forgive Daisy for not providing her profile and background sooner as I know she has been very busy in the last few weeks not least passing her Pool Lifeguard qualification for 5 days ! Daisy is what I would call a proper swimmer and can race on any distance and any stroke whether it is a 50 metre Freestyle sprint 400 I.M. or 800 Freestyle distance swim and do very well at all of them. Her consistency at the County and Regional Championships has seen her achieve some excellent results in the last six years. However the thing that really does impress me is the quality of her work in the training pool and the standard she sets to the other members of the Squad. Daisy worked very hard through the month of June and right up to the Open Meet at Biddulph when one or two swimmers were already easing back and thinking of their holidays. The highest compliment I could pay Daisy is that she is one of the best female trainers in sessions I have ever worked with and that includes two female swimmers who went on to swim in Olympic Games at Sydney and Bejing. Well done to Libby who has been working really hard for quite a period of time and attending a lot of sessions including twice a day on Sundays. This effort showed in the results achieved by Libby at the Biddulph Open Meet in July with lots or personal best times including Gold on the 100 Fly in her age group. Libby was inspired to start competitive swimming with Biddulph after watching the women’s 100 Fly final in the Olympic Games in Rio in 2016 when she was 11 years old. Libby has gone from strength to strength during the last 2 years and will make significant progress if she keeps up the good work !!! Katie has started the new season very well attendance / attitude / ability are all there and achievement with some excellent swims at North Midlands last week. If this continues Katie will have a very successful year keep it up !!! Bradley has really worked hard since we started back after the summer break with high attendance and full deserves swimmer of the month for October. Bradley had some excellent swims at the North Midlands Championships all massive personal best times and also picked up some medals. I think Bradley has a very bright future if he stays as focused and keeps up the quality of his work in training. Well Done Bradley !!!
