Ten-year-old Garstang Gators member Billy Hodge achieved outstanding results when he competed in his first galas.

Billy was part of the north-west disability team which took part in the ESSA Primary School National Championships.

He was a member of both the freestyle and medley relay squads, swimming the backstroke leg in the latter.

And the regional squad won both races, setting championship records in each event.

He also competed in the Cerebral Palsy Sport Gala in Yorkshire, winning gold in the 25m breaststroke and coming third in the backstroke and freestyle races.
