On the 8th December the 2018 Autumn league came to a conclusion, with the newly formed Burton B hosting the 3rd tier final at the Meadowside LC, and the A team going to the Corby International Pool for the 3rd time in a row that Burton had made the grand final. The format of this league is similar to all Leicester Leagues in that the 25-30 clubs are split into a random open draw at round 1 with limited seeding– then you are seeded for round 2 to try and keep apart the top seeds from round 1 – with points earned from the first two round determining what level final you arrive in come December.

Last year the club had made the major final for the second consecutive year. This year we took a huge step forward as a club and moved to fielding a second competitive team for the first time in our history. In round 1 we had been amazed to see the B team come 3rd while our A team had won the gala. In round 2 the A team once again won and the B team came 5th in a 7 team gala.

There are 4 age groupings all at age at the 31/12/18 – being age 10, 12, 14 and over 14 (open). With all Leicester League formats the rules are simple – you cannot swim in round 3 if you have not swam in an earlier round. Races for age 10 are 25m, age 12 are 50m and the older age groups are mainly 100m.

The B team went into this gala ranked 18th and had the mighty Sharks C, Sharks D, Neptune B, Rugby and Swadlincote as their opposition to place teams between 15th and 20th in the final table.

The A team went up against 3 huge teams in Nuneaton, Rushden A and Corby, plus Nene Valley, Penguins, Kettering A and Hinckley B – all to decide who came 1st to 8th this year – our best ever finish on the night being 6th in 2016.
