TWO youngsters from Bridlington Swimming Club gained times to compete at the North East Regional Swimming Competition, held over the first two weekends in June at Sheffield’s Ponds Forge.

The best swimmers from all over the North East come together for this event and the standard of swimming is extremely high.

So Will Dennis, 13, and Tom King, 11, had excelled just to reach the event.

Will competed in five individual events and rose to the occasion, gaining good personal bests and reaching two finals.

Tom competed in six events gaining four personal bests and reached all six finals and was thrilled to walk away with two bronze medals and four other top five places.

Will swam in all three relay events, and Tom swam in two of the relays and both boys have done themselves and the club proud in what is the toughest swimming competition of the area.
