    A newly formed diving club from Burscough defied the odds to take part in the Irish Open Diving Championships in Dublin last weekend.

    The club - formally formed in September 2015 and guided under Head Coach, Carlos Ferra - has seen a rapid rise and is now THE number one club in the North West.

    Competing against top clubs from the south of England, two of the six divers representing the club, Olivia Sumner and León Ferra, walked away with medals in their age groups; what makes the success even more remarkable is the fact the divers have had very limited regular 3 metre training.

    Yesterday, head coach Carlos Ferra told of another challenge - taking part in the English School games.

    He told QLocal: "Qualifying for this event is a significant achievement for a club of our size. It shows that with talent, hard work and determination, anyone can achieve their goals, even without the facilities and support of an elite club.

    "To deliver success at the English School Games will be challenging, but I believe we can compete with the best”

    The club currently has openings for new divers aged between 8 and 11 years old, at their Nye Bevan pool training facilities. They are also interested in those with a gymnastic background; if you wish to join the club, or wish to get involved, you can email diving@bd4f or visit the website www.bd4f.co.uk and Facebook page BD4F for more information.
