Lancaster City Amateur Swimming & Water Polo Club

North West Selection for Inter Regions and International Tournament

May 17, 2013

Six players; Lewis Peach, Daniel Fox, Dean Akister, Zak Lamb, Fen Bleasdale and Alex Armstrong from Lancaster City Swimming and Water Polo Club and three coaching staff; Zak Sly, Gary Ellwood and Trevor Peach, have all been picked to represent the North West in the Youth Boys Inter Region Championships at Basildon over the weekend 25th and 26th May. 

The North West boys’ team are well known for being successful in the Inter Regions and Coach Zak Sly thinks this year will be no different. “Seven of the tiger’s team have just returned from the Junior Boys qualification tournament were they represent Great Britain and are at the peak of their fitness. They won this competition two years ago and have moved on a lot since then and I am confident that this year they can run away with the competition once again!”

North West always enters two teams (Tigers & Ravens) into the Inter Regions and this year is no different. The Ravens team generally is younger then the Tigers team. Tiger lead coach Gary Ellwood said “The Ravens team have some good experience between them and this year we could see a North West Tigers verse North West Ravens final, which will show how far ahead the North West are!”

This is the last Inter Region competition for the born 1996 team but it does not stop there for them. Early July, the Tigers team will be flying out to Rotterdam were they will play a tournament over the weekend and hopefully bring back the trophy! This will involve the three Lancaster players; Lewis Peach and Daniel Fox will be joined by Scott Sharpe along with their coach Zak Sly.

Team Manager Colin Walsh is looking forward to the international trip and agrees with Coach Zak that these lads need to be pushed. “The born 1996 team is a very strong North West team and we need to push them further and to do this we needed to go aboard and take on some different competition at a higher standard”

We wish the lads all the best in the Inter Regions and also when they fly out to Rotterdam later this year!
