NORTHWICH Amateur Swimming Club will send a pair of junior members to represent the region at next month’s Royal Life Saving Society (RLSS) UK Championships.
Martin Rodgerson and newcomer Cian Morrin were victors in the under 14s boys’ class during the regional heats, securing a place in the north west’s team for the national finals at Ponds Forge in Sheffield.
They came through a Liverpool and District branch qualifier at Crewe earlier this year, a first major competition for Morrin.
Rodgerson steps onto the national stage for a third time in November.
“Martin has been an excellent mentor to Cian, who has learned quickly,” said Tricia Porter, a coach at Northwich Lifesaving Club.
“Both boys put in a huge amount of work to make it.”
Northwich’s Sam Watson missed out on a place at the regional finals after finishing as runner-up in the individual men’s category in the branch qualifier.
