Having already sealed one Essex League promotion, Braintree and Bocking Swimming Club head coach John Lowe is already eyeing up a possible second elevation.

The club’s swimmers have been rewarded for their consistency this year by gaining promotion to division two of the Essex Swimming League.

Lowe said: “We were by far the stronger team over the three rounds, with very consistent performances all-round.

“I have every confidence we shall perform well next season in a stronger division, maybe even challenging for promotion to division one.”
