Wisbech Swimming Club honoured some of its stars of 2014 at its annual awards presentation evening.
Head coach Greg Marsters first presented the awards to girls’ team captain Abigail Foley and boys’ captain Ollie Newton. He also presided over the Fen Regis Trophy for the most promising/improved swimmer from the 13/U age group, which went to Carl Purvey, the Darren Lynn trophy for the most promising/improved swimmer from the 12/U group (Megan Kierman) and the Arles Trophy for the swimmer showing most dedication throughout the year (Jacob Rhodes).

Hannah Brown took the Clare Lancaster Cup as the female swimmer scoring most points for the club in the year’s county championships, while the DS Medals and Trophies Award for the same achievement by a male swimmer went to Alex Gallagher.
