Gerry Gibbons memorial gala report

On Saturday the 22nd October, 14 of our swimmers travelled to Spalding to take part in the Gerry Gibbons Memorial Gala.This gala is held annually in memory of Gerry, who for many years was involved with South Lincs swimming club where his son Adam swam. Adam also swam with Lincoln Vulcans for a number of years before leaving to go to Loughborough University.

For many of our swimmers this was their first competitive gala but they were led by two experienced swimmers in Abbie Nichols and Jordon Strathon. There were numerous pbs across the board with all of our first timers , Ravi Yarwood, Johnathon Timmins, Luca Saggiorato, Harry Wood, George Pinder, Connor Jackson, Declan Bennett, Madeline Wood, Megan Bennett, Charlotte Bowker, Caitlin Andrews and Ellie Hackett swimming well. The team finished in fifth place with the gala being won by Deepings Swimming Club.

Well done to all those taking part who were a credit to the club. The gala raised over £300 for charity so thanks to all those who came to watch and bought raffle tickets.
