THURROCK Swimming Club hosted the first Alan Mitchell Memorial gala at Blackshots. It was in memory of Thurrock’s previous Head Coach who passed away last year due to cancer.
Alan’s family turned up and a lot of kind words were said during the event but the real talking took place in the pool and Alan would have been so proud.
The swimmers swam out of their skins and there were amazing performances by all.
