TROPHIES: Eliza Radclyffe and Freya Doran with their awards

At the Salthouse Dock on a very pleasant Saturday morning, the Liverpool Openwater Ivan Percival Autumn Meet was almost a replica of the Spring Meet with Eliza Radclyffe winning the 1 mile skins event and Freya Doran winning the 1 mile wetsuit competition with Winsford’s Andy Bolton winning the 2 miles skins event.

It’s congratulations to a trio of Wirral Metro swimmers. Abbie Roscoe has been selected for the Swim England Distance Initiative Programme, Petra Varga has earned a place on the Swim England National Talent Programme, while Lauren Berry will be taking part in the Swim England North West Regional Development Programme. The club has also been shortlisted for the “Club of the Year” at the upcoming Wirral Sports Awards.
