Molyneaux added: “Joe had an amazing swim and I look forward to seeing what he can achieve in the last competition of the swimming year.
“It has been a really positive season and no less than what all the swimmers deserve from the hard work they have put in. We now have a break over the summer for the swimmers to recharge ahead of next season where hopefully they can continue the upward trend the club has been on over the past few years.
