Young swimmers from Batley Sports and Tennis Centre produced some excellent displays against teams from across Kirklees at an event in Huddersfield last weekend.

Brothers Daniel Jackson and Samuel Jackson, from Gomersal, were on the podium for all four of their swims.

Eight-year-old Daniel, swimming in the age 9-10 heats, won the gold medal in his four races, the front crawl, back crawl, breast stroke and butterfly.

Batley coaches are waiting to hear if he has broken age related records on the way.
