Fareham Nomads Round One 2016


Fareham Nomads had a speedy start to the season by placing second in the first round of the National Arena Swimming League gala - by just two points.
 
A determined team of Fareham Nomads swimmers raced Bracknell and Wokingham A team, Walkers Tigers, Alton and District, Guildford City C team, and Bracknell and Wokingham B team in the Division One West competition on Saturday 8 October at Bracknell Leisure Centre.
 
Head coach John Molyneaux said: ‘Fareham Nomads raced for every single point, with swimmers fighting for every position. This was reflected by the fact the swimmers produced 39 personal best times at the gala, which is very pleasing.
 
‘Although we came second behind Bracknell and Wokingham A team, it was the fight against Walker Tigers which was tight, as we finished just ahead of them by two points.
 
‘I am proud of our team who raced hard. They were supported by swimmers and parents on poolside who cheered the loudest.’
 
Christopher Finch, Amelia Boyes, Ryan Ireland, Hannah Cooper, Joe Davies, Izzy Talbot, Ellen Jewell, Charlie Hoyler, Jessica Davies and James Baxter all won their individual races to score Fareham Nomads maximum points.
 
Molyneaux added: ‘We are looking forward to racing again in round two which will be held on November 12.’
