Match Report
Reading Blue Coat School Boys-U12 vs  Crosfields School
On: Thursday, 10 Oct 2019
Venue: Away

Crosfields 109 - 91 RBC

It is always a pleasure visiting Crosfields to swim and this was no different as many of the boys swam against former team mates and friends as the gala produced an extremely friendly, competitive and fun atmosphere. Crosfields U13s are very strong so it was always going to be a tough test for our Y8s but the swimmers gave their absolute best. It great to see that with a few practices now under their belts, the U12s really stepped up and filled some spaces in the U13 team and showed real strength in depth with Alan Parra-Manzo the standout in terms of both organising and swimming! It was, however, great to see Zach Majmader, the Yr 8 captain swim a superb length to win the combined cannon relay.
