UEA City of Norwich Swimming Club duo Jessica-Jane Applegate and Jordan Catchpole have been named in the Great Britain squad for the Para-Swimming European Championships.


The youngsters are among 24 swimmers included in the GB squad ahead of the event at the National Aquatic Centre in Dublin from August 13 to 19 – where more than 550 para-swimmers from 37 countries are set to compete.

For 18-year-old Catchpole, from Beccles, it will be his first European Championship and follows on from a successful weekend at the British Para-Swimming International Meet 2018 in Sheffield. The teen set a new British record for the 100m backstroke and won two gold medals and a bronze.

Four-time Paralympic medallist Applegate will be heading to her third European Championships, having won two silver medals and a bronze in Eindhoven in 2014 and two silvers in Madeira two years ago. Both compete in the S14 class for swimmers with intellectual disabilities.

The Quay kept to its up and down face at Beccles, sometimes in five or six swims really good fishing, making 30lbs of mainly small bream, but 40 yards away only a moderate bag. Certainly the most prolific area has been sitting down where the boat is behind on the grass, or nearer to the Harbourmasters building when the tide has fallen away. This week quite a few good catches came from out on the waggler with the skimmers tending to wait until the bait to build up before coming in. Perch are the bonus and to a good size in the swims where only the odd skimmer passes through stopping to feed up nearer the river end taking a whole worm amidst the cupped choppy feed. Still craving for the colour to provoke a feeding frenzy the roach shoals roam the river never seemingly settling long anywhere as pike packs push them around at speed.
