Other Dolphins swimmers, who also made the Regionals and finished with many PBs and swam very well, were Ellie Smeeton, Ella Simmonite, Edward Durham and Paul Gordon.

Worksop Dolphins swimmers were then back at Ponds Forge to compete in the Rotherham Metro meet.

Many fine swims from the club were recorded, including many PBs, making it a great spell for their squad members.

Dolphins were given another booster when they tied up a new sponsorship deal.

A club spokesman said: “We are very excited with the news that Mech FS, who are a Mechanical Facilities Services company, are coming on board and we hope will be our major sponsor for a long time to come.

“More details will come out in the next few weeks about Mech FS and ourselves.

“This deal will enable us to appoint a new full time assistant swim coach.

“Applications for that position are now open and we have people interested.

“Sponsorship is something that all ambitious clubs with a swim squad require to help development and growth, and we thank all the sponsors who help us big or small - you make our job so much easier.”
