LAST week the group of Beccles Kingfisher swimmers who helped the club to win the Winter League Division Two title were given trophies on behalf of the club for their effort.

The trophies were donated by Goldline Travel in Beccles and presented by Ian and Claire last Thursday. They have now been sponsoring the club for just over a year, a period that has been full of success for the club which is going from strength to strength.

So far this year, as well as winning the Division Two Winter League title, they have also captured the local M & H Plastics Trophy, beating local competition Norwich Swans and Lowestoft & Oulton Broad.

The junior team have also cemented their position in the top division of the Summer League following promotion last year with just on race left to go.

Five swimmers - Ellen Nelson, Eleanor Veasy, Alex Eames-Bayton, Chas Lees and Eleanor McGrath - have also swum in this year's regional championships and making history by being the first swimmers to take part in the competition as Beccles Town.

Eleanor McGrath went on to take eighth in the region for her 100 breaststroke swim.
