Coach Richard Walker said that it was a very good night for the team. Credit to all Cheshunt swimmers who swam their hearts out but particular congratulation has to go to all those swimmers making their first appearance in the Peanuts League, I know that there were a few nerves but none of them showed when they were in the water. We have a lot to be positive about going forward, hopefully in the next couple of rounds we can do even better.
