“The medals, the PBs and the message received telling me that we are the top-performing club at the nationals in the county were very nice.

“However, what showed was how hard-working and dedicated these young people are.

“They reaped the rewards for their efforts and created some great memories.

“We are all very proud of their achievements and hopefully people within the area will feel as proud as myself and the parents.”
