A TEAM of 20 swimmers from the newly merged Burnley Aquatics club - formally Burnley and Rosegrove Swimming Clubs - were in action last weekend at Palatine Pool, Blackpool, in the North Lancashire January meet.

The team, pictured, put on an excellent performance, winning a total of 40 medals - 16 gold, 17 silver and seven bronze.

Eight swimmers - Erica Minozzi, Ella Sheridan, Jamie Sharpley, Harry Pilkington, Emma Fothergill, Katie Rennolds, Grace Pickles and Megan Hall finished in the top six overall for their age groups.

All swimmers managed to achieve personal best times, many obtaining Lancashire and Regional qualifying times for 2011, and all swimmers were a credit to their club.
