A QUARTET of swimming stars from Blessed Trinity are ‘Hungary’ for more success.

Emma Fothergill, 15, represented Great Britain at the Catholic School Games in Hungary and is also captain of the senior swim team and trains with Burnley Bobcats and Burnley Aquatics.

Emma, who lives on Hillingdon Road, is devoted to swimming – training seven times a week.

“She is a fantastic role model for all our younger swimmers,” said Claire Juriansz, Curriculum Leader for PE & Sport.

And Blessed Trinity have another trio of Burnley Aquatics and Burnley Bobcats swimmers who are also making a splash.

Anna Brown, 11, has a cabinet full of trophies. “I train three or four mornings a week from 5.45-7.15am and two evenings for two hours each session,” said the former St Mary’s RC Primary School pupil.

Lucy Cole, 14, and Elicia Brown, 15, all swim seven times a week and compete for Lancashire and the North West as well.

They all competed in eight competitions last year and hope to build on their success.

FOUR Blessed Trinity footballers have capped a memorable year by being called up for the Lancashire U16s squad.

All four were part of the history-making team that won the ESFA National Cup last year at Derby County – the first Burnley team to win it.
