M11 League Victory
Braintree and Bocking Swimming Club ended the London Junior Swimming League on a high as they hosted and won the final gala of the season to take the overall trophy.
The team went into the final level on points with Luton and their young swimmers did not disappoint as they finished first on the night and were awarded the trophy in front of a very supportive audience.
The victory was dedicated to the outgoing organisers, Roger and Janet Watkins, who have done so much for this league over the years.
