MAKE IT SNAPPY: Huntingdon Piranhas' swimmers continued their flying start to the year with a second trophy win.

They picked up the Kirk Ogden Trophy Gala, held at March, beating stiff competition from March, Chatteris, Wisbech, Downham Market and Great Yarmouth.

Piranhas won 15 of the 45 races and finished second in a further eight, in the process setting 23 new personal best times.

Head coach John Richards said: "This was a graded gala which gave some of our less experienced swimmers, two as young as eight, the opportunity to take part.
