Worcestershire at the County Team Champs

Worcestershire finished rock bottom of Division One last year, slipping back to the second tier after their promotion as runners-up in 2014.

They were one of four counties in the top flight not to register a race win 12 months ago, with Brittany Horton the last swimmer to land maximum points for the county from the 2014 promotion campaign.

With a competitive squad once again assembled, Worcestershire will have their targets set on sealing promotion as they did in 2012 and 2014.

Wyre Forest swimmer Samuel Osborne comes into the Championships off the back of an excellent long course season, having won the 400m and 1500m Freestyle double, as well as 200m Free silver, at this year’s British Summer Championships.

City of Hereford’s James Bilbao also medalled at the British Summer Champs, landing bronze in the 15 Yrs 200m Breaststroke.

Mark Laing has also tasted success at Ponds Forge this year, winning 50m Butterfly gold at the ASA Summer Nationals.

Meanwhile, William Gearey could be one to watch in the youngest age group. The Worcester swimmer made the 50m Butterfly final at his maiden British Summer Championships this year, and has since taken his short course 100m Free PB down to a competitive 56.26.
