Royston Swimming Club will honour its 2006 champions on Friday after the most competitive championship meeting in the club's history.

Nearly 100 swimmers fought for club titles at the leisure centre pool in November and will pick up prizes at an awards evening.

Coach Tricia Dear is delighted that new talents - such as Madison Lambley and Lilly Church - have emerged to share the limelight with established performers Tom Higton and Tom Shield.
