SWIMMERS start a busy seven days today when they head to Macclesfield for the eighth annual Cheshire County Junior Graded Meet.

Knutsford Vikings will send two dozen members to the day-long event, a pre-cursor to the club’s own annual championship that starts on Wednesday, from 8pm.

Boys and girls, aged from nine through to 12, race at Macclesfield Leisure Centre.

Vikings were in action at Leigh last weekend for the latest round in North West Division Two of the National Arena League.
