Phillip Coulson was delighted with his team-mates after they won their 4x100m freestyle heat last night.
Coulson said: “I think we’re all pretty proud of the lads for winning their heat.
“It was also clear that some stamina work is needed for the later parts of the race.
He is confident that the team can perform to a strong ability over the weekend.
He said: “A few of the lads have taken part in the 50m freestyle today and I think they’ll put some good times in.
“We are missing a few swimmers this weekend so it’s a good chance for some people to try a few races that they might not normally specialise in and hopefully get some good experience for the years going forward.
“We’re hoping to hit some personal bests but we’ll just see how the weekends goes.”
