NEWPORT Pagnell Swimming Club fought off seven other teams to top the Division Two table after the first round of the Chiltern League.

Newport finished the evening on 265 points, a massive 37 points clear of their nearest rivals as their young swimmers secured a very impressive 10 first place finishes.

A fantastic 26 new personal best times were set by Jessica Bampton, Grace Coats, James O’Brien, Aimee Hayward, Alex Meijer and Elizabeth Endell-Davies, and there was also success in the relay events.

There was a great atmosphere on the night and the Newport squad got behind their team-mates when they were in action – cheering them on to victory more than any other club.

Now they will aim to continue that winning form in the second round of the competition later this month.
