Back-to-Back Pocklington Champions

In 2010 there was a real three way race for the title between Adwick, Askern and Armthorpe, with each team winning at least one of the league galas. Despite being beaten by Askern in the final gala, our consistent placings over the 4 galas (2nd, 1st, 1st, 2nd) meant we clung on to a narrow 2 point victory to claim the Division 1 title.

2011 was a slightly different story though. Spa were fielding a considerably smaller team and their all conquering boys team was now swimming in the open age group (instead of doubling up in two age groups) which meant they weren't in the running for the title. So the league very quickly turned into a two horse race between Adwick and Armthorpe. The first gala was close, really close - Armthorpe won by a single point! From then on though Armthorpe stepped up a gear and started churning out some amazing swims week after week. The result of that hard work can be seen below...
