A double figure return of Diss Otters members have been rewarded for their recent positive results at the County Championships in the form of call-ups to the Norfolk squad.

Sophia Pickering, Grace Greenhalf, Rosie Munnings, Barney Clarke, Matthew Munnings, Cameron Day, Matthew Tatum, Isaac Bachu, Joel Clarke and Dominic Boylan are the swimmers that have been picked, with all 10 set to represent the team at the Tri-Counties gala, hosted by the UEA Sportspark on March 5.

The Otters’ achievement in having so many swimmers (aged nine to 16) selected is highlighted by the fact that West Norfolk and Norwich Swan have had the same number combined called-up, while only UEA City of Norwich have more.

Meanwhile, many of those the Diss contingent that will turn out for Norfolk are also preparing for the Eastern Regional Championships, which are held in April (15 and over) and May (14 an under).
