Congratulations Eja…

Well done to Eja Coe who has been selected to train with Derventio eXcel’s Regional squad starting in the new season. In addition, Eja was selected by the Derbyshire ASA to attend the County Talent Camp series earlier in the season. These are fantastic achievements, and it also means we now have six swimmers on the programme.

Team Ilkeston are proud of your achievements Eja, and we all wish you the very best!
