Jon Rudd's PL squad head off to Yorkshire for tomorrow's 41st National Arena Swimming League Cup Final without a handful of their frontline swimmers, scattered at various points around the globe following the air travel problems caused by Icelandic volcanic ash.

The Leander head coach is however boosted by the return of Commonwealth Games-bound Achieng Ajulu-Bushell.

The 16-year-old Great Britain star teamed up with the Sheffield-bound squad back in Plymouth yesterday.

Rudd and his coaching team can still call on the likes of Emma Wilkins, Antony James and Steven Beckerleg among other top-class swimmers, who have helped Leander win the trophy for the past two years.

Rudd says: "If we win it again, which is obviously what we are going there for, then it will be against the odds."

Western Division sides Millfield School and Bournemouth Dolphins are also represented in the 10-team cup final while Exeter City Swimming Club compete in the 10th National Arena Swimming League B Final, also staged at the internationally-renowned Ponds Forge pool tomorrow.
