The second round of the Notts and Derby Junior League took place at Hucknall this evening for the A team with tough competition from City of Derby.

Belper Marlin set about the task in trade mark positive fashion, with the late evening sun blazing through the glass making conditions particularly difficult for the team at the start/end of the pool.
Belper had 5 1st places:
Nick Skinner 11/u Fly and Back
Elliot Poplar 12/u Breaststroke and F/C
Phoebe Barden 12/u F/C
These were backed up by 16 2nd places and 13 PBs which all contributed to Belper finishing in second place on the evening.

Belper Marlin 2nd 178
Radford 3rd 156
Falcon 4th 135
