After qualifying in the top 4 of the Junior Jubilee League, Tyldesley travelled to Bury to swim against, Bury and Elton, Crompton Classics and Stalybridge.   All four teams had finished within ten points of each other in the qualifying rounds and a close final was predicted. The teams were supported by a very partisan and passionate group of parents, friends and family.   Tyldesley started as third favourites on paper, but for the first time for this season had all their swimmers available. These swimmers were aged between 9 and 13 and had varying swimming backgrounds, some had been at the Club for nearly ten years having learned to swim at the club, others had been part of Pelican Centres Learn to Swim Programme only 12 months ago.   42 Sprint races were to follow to decide the Central Lancashire Junior Jubilee Champions   The pace was set in the second race when James Blenkinship touched home a very close 1st in the 25m backstroke. In races 5 and 7 Jodie Gittins and Imogen Bailey raced home to add to the wins.   After ten races Tyldesley lead Bury by 1 point.   Jodie Gittins, Imogen Bailey, Oliver Cope and the girls 13yrs freestyle squad then claimed more wins.   After 20 races Tyldesley now lead Crompton and Bury by 7 points.   Every swimmer raced not just to win but for the best they could do for the team and the steady collection of points was holding Tyldesleys lead.   Over the next ten races only Annie Holt got a first in the 50m backstroke but the boys 11yrs relay stormed home to support that win.   After 30 races Tyldesley only lead by 9 points, and with 4 points for a win were still unsure of victory.   In the final 12 races they only managed four firsts, Imogen Bailey, Kelsey Evans, the 13yr old girls medley squad, and the girls cannon freestyle squad all coming first.   They were made to wait for the final results but Tyldesley won through.   Final Score TSWPC 119 Crompton Classics 108 Bury and Elton 105 Stalybridge 89
