Two teams of swimmers from Kimberley SC were in action on Saturday, one at Bramcote Leisure Centre and another in Hucknall.

In addition, ten out of 13 relays were won as Kimberley comfortably won the gala, finishing 71 points clear of second-placed Carlton Forum.

At Hucknall, in the third round of the JC Dobbs Trophy League, there were wins for Jade Duffy (2), Katie Horner (2), Josh Shipman, Nathan Venn, Ted Goonan, Tyler Meads, Jessica Shephard, Courtney Butters , Gemma Calder and seven of Kimberley’s relay teams.

There were also seven events were Kimberley members swam quicker than the upper cut-off times and so scored no points.

Kimberley finished in third place on the night but second overall in the league behind winners Sutton.
