Ian Norman finished 2015 in 35th place, having swum in fewer competitions than he did in 2014.

In the Ladies Championship, Eloise Turner in her first ever Masters swimming season, finished in 24th place from only four races.

Meanwhile, Glenda Mayes, returning to Masters competition after a 14-year absence, came 25th from her three races.

With the recent influx of new female Masters to the club, Team Luton’s women will be looking for more placings in the 2016 Bedfordshire Masters Championships.

Team Luton are now focusing on the European Masters championships that are being held in London at the end of May.
