CREWE Flyers showcased a new generation of their young talent at the annual Postcode Relay Gala at Warrington pool.
Handing competitive debuts to 11 swimmers in races ranging from under 9s to under 12s age groups, Crewe sent a team of 18 swimmers to compete with teams from Warrington, St Helens, Northwich, Cheadle and Liverpool Penguins.
Nicole Butt, Millie Cullen, Katy Griffin, Liwia Kuznik, Sophie Morris, Hollie Richardson, Jess Walker, Emma Wells and Ben Wells all made their competitve debuts in front of a packed gallery full of family and friends, with Flyers' inexperienced squad finishing sixth after competing in a series of age group relays.
Head coach Farouk Graba said: "The Flyers are known as being a small and friendly family run club, so to see so many youngsters swimming for the first time was a great experience for them and their friends and family.
"We are keen to see the next group of swimmers develop, many of them have progressed so much over the last 12 months and we hope this helps them to improve and keep working hard."
Flyers still have space for new swimmers from the age of five and up, with all ages and abilities welcome, and the club have four qualified teachers with a head coach of more than 25 years experience.
