Look at all those HANDSOME swimmers
Look at all those shiney TROPHIES
Look at the look of CONFUSION on Danias face as she looks at Sahill
I think that this is the quietest we have ever know Isaac and Aidan.....Maybe we should send them up for more trophies??
M&D - Round 1
A great win in the first round sets us up nicely for the next round.
I'm Not sure what Hugh is selling......
but im BUYING!!!
Wirral - Autum Met
For some reason Harry has confused "Smile" with "Hold your breath untill you pass out".
Easily done i suppose??
This is going to sound like i'm picking on the poor lad.....but he's making it so easy!!
Not a bad turn out for our 1st gala of the year....although some of them kids do look like they've wandered into the photo by accident???
Some of our incredible medal winners.....not sure what kid harry beat up for his as he was DEFO the smallest there?!?!
These are my favorite photos!! We've got so many kids that have got no clue why i'm taking their photo....they all just look like they've had far to much sugar and are just happy to be involved,
Lancashire County Championships
Look at all those kids...there's millions of them and that's not even ALL OF THEM!!
Look at the terrified look in Oliver's eye's
Look at all those medals..........
JUST LOOK AT THEM!!
This really is an incredible performance. We were very proud to have 3 kids in the Lancashire county Squad, that is the most that we have ever had. So a huge well done goes to Will Irvine, Madison Rens and Finlay Arnold......we would have DEFO got you better medals though!
Arena League Final
Gonna take a wild guess...but i think Brian's got a NEW favorite??
What a team...well half a team anyway
Not quite sure why we're STILL social distancing our swimmers?!?!
On a positive note, it finally looks like our jnr captain has nailed the ancient art of getting a half decent photo taken!
Wirral Metro Christmas Meet
We certainly seem to attract a few weirdos to Crosby....i mean....look at them!! haha
Huge well done to you all!!
I'm not entirely sure if Finn didn't beat u[p a few little kids to get ALL THOSE MEDALS...... he looks like Mr T(Not that he'll know who that is??)!!
Nice to see Becs back in with a medal!!
Some of the squad that represented the club at this years L&D Championships...Only just noticed that the ladies have stuck the boys on the floor...wonder if that was on purpose???
Well didnt they do well!!!
Not sure if Artem is showing off his medals or auditioning for the next Duran Duran video??
M&D Round 1
Few New faces in that bunch!!
Isla looking like she is auditioning for a new hip-hop band while Annie just looks far to happy to me!!
Also like SUPER COOL Zein.....Good to have you back in the team larrrr!!
Arena League Round 1
Who would have thought, that with just these NINE kids we could do SO MUCH DAMAGE
at the Arena League?!?!
Personal highlight was watching Isaac DOMINATE in the open age 100m fly.......but you where all INCREDIBLE!!
i had to do soft focus on the photo because Millie and Maisie aren't getting any younger!!
Wirral Metro Autumn Met
Some of our excellent swimmers from the weekend.
But why does Eva And Sofia look so pleased and why does it look like the lads have done something??
Well done to some of our medalists!! The rest are just to super cool to turn up for photo's anymore.......TEENAGERS!!!
ohhh, well would you look at this.
BUT 3 Crosby swimmers
(4 if you count Ethan!!)
made into the Lancashire Team this year!!!
A increbilble acheiveiment by the nippers. Not only a free swim cap and hoodie, but our eternal gratitude as well!! haha
Well done Madison, Finlay and Will and good luck!!
M&D Champions 2022!!!
I think that this is my new favorite photo of the Crosby Swim Club Ruffians.
Who is that dashing bearded gentleman on his incredibly painful looking knees at the front???
He seems like a really interesting person and someone i'd like to meet!!
Will being presented with the most handsome and bestest timekeeper at the gala trophy by fellow Crosby Captains.
Well done mate, but maybe next time you can give the swim thing a whirl??
Now that is a FINE group of swimmers!!
Why does it look like Trudy has got a cob on over something else that i'm not quite getting the jist of......at least Finn seems to get it!?!?
The well oiled machine that was Marshaling.....oh and there's some kids there as well???
Looks Like Millie & Maddie have been taking "CLASSIC" photo poses off their dads, while Fred was wondering if she would make it home in time for Love Island. Lexie was DEFO worried about her eyebrows
Issac BETTER get a wriggle on!!
Dylan looking impressive nailing the breaststroke......shame it was a butterfly race!
........Dont recongnise any of those girls, but more worrying is the kids on the poolside looking at them like they've NEVER seen backstroke before!!
Starting to think Annabel is following that camera around??
Looks like the witch from Grifindor has given Tilly a go-faster spell!!
Proper action shot!!
Would hate to be the touch judge in THAT race!! I'd have just DQ'd them and given it to the lad in 2...EASY!
Caleb looking somewhat unimpressed despite Tyler insiting that this is THE best chicken impression ever!!
Chayton getting his game face on!
Another great race.....bet the parents know if that's their nipper....think 1 might even be mine???
Crosby kids wrapped in towels huddled together for warmth and wandering around like they survived a natural disaster
M&D Round 3
Im not sure what Keshav is selling.....BUT IM BUYING!!!
and it looks like Adams upset Esmee again??
.....Who is Maeve hiding from??
Looks like Lukes forgot his shirt AGAIN!!
M&D Round 2
I'm not sure why Warren looks so guilty?? i thought he swam AMAZING!!
These kids are turning into a very good group of swimmers while no ones been watching!!
Is that Nic in another photo....i'm not sure whether he'll be a film start or a politician...which ever one has the most photo opportunities i suspect??
.....and another decent photo of Will!!!
Wirral Metro"OMIGONE" Gala
Why is the littlest person in the world hiding all the way up there!! We can still see you Jess!!
Also, yet another swimmer using Caleb hair as a hidy hole
.....i can see you as well Eva!!
I'm not sure what i said to get this reaction from our medalists, must have been something hilarious or inspiring??
Either way Tilly looks less than impressed with me
Our City Swimmers.
Ethan practicing his
"HURRY UP, Ive been smiling like this all day" pose. Trudy just trying to be cool....i know she's made up though!!
The future of Crosby swimming club is safe in these kids hands.....???
Only kidding, these fine specimens of youth are going to
Lancashire County Championships
A very impressive amount of swimmers took part this year, particularly considering the entry times......although Caleb and Casey don't seem very impressed!
Im not sure what more more impressive. The fact that we have so many medalist......or that we've finally got a half decent photo of Will?!?!?

Why does our team look like a promo for the latest channel 5 teen drama?
Casey looks like he's just had some bad news about his favorite garden gnome
Caleb looks like a mysterious ex has just walked through the doors looking distinctly pregnant
Isobella looks like someone has just told her a bit of juicy goss and she cant wait to get to the next teen disco to tell everyone!
Well done to our pennant winners. Some of our first time competitors with some of our more seasoned members. Well done everyone!!

And the final piece of the puzzle......or the kids that didn't turn up for the photo on Monday
