Wisbech Swimming Club have retained their Junior Fenland League title following success in the 'A' final, which was held at the Manor Leisure centre in Whittlesey due to ongoing work at Peterborough’s regional Pool.

Going into the final with a 100% record from the previous galas, Wisbech found themselves up against City of Peterborough A, West Norfolk, and St Ives.

On the night, Wisbech came out on top with 170 points which at the end of the night gave them a 19-point winning margin.

The swimmers certainly saved their best for the final, achieving an incredible 34 personal best times from the 44 races and breaking 16 cut-off times. 

There were 15 first place finishes on the night for: Jacob Hicks (2) Harrison Otter (2) Holly Smith (2) Esmai Smith, Lilly Wright, Isabella Burton, Arabella Tysterman, Shay Connolly, Oscar Muller, Alicija-Mai Gowler, Kevin Sorokin, Race Elmer.

Success on the night meant they topped the league table for the season maintaining their 100% record and were crowned JFL league winners for the 4th time in 5 years and Team captains Jake Trundle and Isabella Burton were presented with the winners’ shield.

Their JFL success came a week after the team competed in the Senior Fenland League final at Newmarket.

Up against Ely, March, St Ives, St Neots and Mildenhall and with an extremely young team for this event they finished in a very respectable 4th place accumulating 146 points on the night.

They weren’t fazed by the level of competition on the night, achieving 20 personal best times and there were first place finishes for Oscar Muller (2) Jensen Stevens.
