Leicestershire at the County Team Champs

Every point was crucial for Leicestershire 12 months ago as they survived the drop by nine points, finishing 15th overall.

Will Bell – who was the county’s last race winner at County Team Champs in 2015 – spearheaded the charge with a third in the 100m Free and fourth in the 100m Breast.

The City of Leicester swimmer returns for a second crack at the 14/15 Yrs age group this year, with entries in the 100m Back and 100m Breast.

Bell is not short of firepower from his City of Leicester teammates with three British Summer Champs medallists joining him in Sheffield.

Maisie Elliott won 13/14 Yrs 100m Fly gold in July, and steps up to the middle age group in Sheffield for both fly and freestyle. Carys O’Reilly took 200m Breast silver at the Summer Champs and also goes for the first time in the 14/15 Yrs age group.

Meanwhile, in the men’s event, 200m and 400m IM medallist James Newman looks set to go for a second year in the 14/15 Yrs 100m Fly.

Leicester’s Lewis Kerrod could also have a big say in the 17/18 Yrs 100m Free and 100m Fly, holding the fastest entry in the former and second fastest in the latter.

In the youngest age group, Chloe Baxter is the fastest 12-year old in the 100m Freestyle on paper, having reached the podium with bronze in the same event at this year’s Swim England Summer Meet.
