KIDLINGTON & Gosford SC are looking onwards and upwards after returning to competing in the National Arena League.

The club marked their first season back in the event for more than ten years by finishing seventh in Division 2 (South) West.

After a period of redevelopment at Kidlington, swimmers were able to show off a new kit while competing.

Financial backing from Kidlington Sports Centre through Legacy Leisure has also enabled the club to invest in new starting blocks and backstroke ledges.

Head Coach Johny Richards said: “The swimmers now have access to the equipment that matches the club’s ambitions and it’s fantastic to see the excitement building around.”
