Sevenoaks Swimming Club welcome new Head Coach Matt Paget

After four years with Sevenoaks Swimming Club, Head Coach, Keiron Piper left the club at the end of 2022 for a new role as the Lead Coach at the Millfield School in Somerset.

His replacement, Matt Paget, has now arrived at Sevenoaks and is keen to get going in his new role. Matt was most recently Head Coach of Watford Swimming Club and he is extremely passionate about swimming. A down side for Matt is that he supports Tottenham Hotspur, so we can only imaging that he is delighted that Sevenoaks Swimming Club is a very red Club and known on socials as the ‘Redarmy’!

Sevenoaks Swimming Club tweeted: “A huge welcome to the newest member of the @7oaksSwim #RedArmy our new Head Coach @SwimCoachMatt_ We are excited to have you on board”. Outgoing coach Keiron wished him well saying: “Go smash it, mate!”

Junior Internationals and Euro Meet
Meanwhile, Olympic hopeful and Sevenoaks swimmer, Eva Okaro, won the Girls 100m fly at the Ontario Junior International held in December. Eva recorded a time of 1:00.07.

Eva will join three other Sevenoaks swimmers who have been selected to represent the South East Region at the Luxembourg Euro Meet in January. Joining Eva is Aaliyah Richards, Albert Branch and Matt Burrows.

English Channel swim

The members make up the aptly-named ‘Team Sevenoaks Channel Swimmers’ – a group of swimmers preparing to swim the English Channel later this year!

Daniel, Sam, Mac and Joey will be completing the English Channel Swim in August 2023 to raise money for charity.
