Watford claimed the Peanuts League Division One title off City of St Albans Swimming Club at a closely fought final round in Potters Bar.

CoStA won the final round by a single point but it wasn’t enough to knock Watford off of top spot. The club’s B team finished in sixth place in Division One.

There were individual wins for Oscar Brice, Ella Chown, Lauren Stott, Matthew Martin, Kieran Birkett and Manraj Singh, with wins for the U12 boys’ and girls’ freestyle relay teams, the U9 and U13 girls’ medley teams and the U13 girls’ freestyle relay team.

CoStA A also took 16 second places out of the 49 events.

A club spokeman said: “CoStA can be justly proud of the strength and depth of its squad, and it remains the only team in Hertfordshire to have two teams in the first division of the Peanuts League. CoStA’s coaches were overjoyed for their hardworking swimmers.”

The Peanuts League resumes in May next year.
