Masters Intercounties 2017

Tuesday, 31 October 2017 23:09

It is with great regret that due to lack of responses we are unable to field a team for this years Intercounty competition on 12th November 2017, and have therefore withdrawn the team from this event.

The decision has not been taken lightly but due to the lack of responses to the initial emails sent out we are unable to field a team that has the number of swimmers we require and also the amount of swimmers across all of the age groups to be able to put a team together that would be in a strong position to be competitive in this event.

Thank you to those who did respond to the initial emails, and we apologise that you will be unable to compete and represent the county at what is an enjoyable event, but we have had to take a lot in consideration when making a decision to withdraw the team and unfortunately based on numbers of responses, we have had to take this tough decision.

I am sorry that we have had to take these necessary measures, but we hope we can put a team into next years competition.

If there are any queries please feel free to contact myself or Graham Huggett at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Many Thanks
