The City of Salford Swimming Club is certainly enhancing its reputation as a producer of top medal winners, with Eccles College student, Lewis Clough, selected as one of only 26 athletes to represent Great Britain at the European Junior Championships in Hungary this summer.

"We are very proud that Salford has produced yet another GB swimmer" says Salford Head Coach and Aquatic Development Manager John Stout. "We are delighted for Lewis and this selection represents a further milestone in his career. The Rio Olympics is a bit early for him but he is certainly talented enough to put himself in the selection frame for Tokyo in 2020.

"It is testimony to the superb work done by our coaching set up in Salford that we continue to produce athletes who compete at the highest levels and represent their country" he adds "Lewis follows in the footsteps of Luke Wood, James Doolan, Heather Frederiksen and Danny Phillips who were all selected to the GB Junior Team."

Lewis won medals representing England in the Commonwealth Games in Samoa last year, and got selected to represent GB this year with strong performances in the 50, 100, 200metres Freestyle and 100metre Butterfly at the British Swimming Championships in Glasgow.

The City of Salford Swimming Club has a long history of producing international swimmers since 1977, and there have been 25 internationals between 2002 and 2016.

DREW POVEY ACCUSES SALFORD COUNCIL OF 'HEAVY HANDED' 'VENDETTA'

"I'm speaking up for myself but also all the leaders who have been in touch to say the same happened to them #TakeAStand..." Drew Povey

Drew Povey, the Executive Head of Harrop Fold in Little Hulton, has resigned from his post, slamming Salford Council's "heavy handed approach" while investigating 'administrative errors' at the school and accusing it of a "personal vendetta".

In an open letter to the school's governors, Drew Povey writes that he refuses to walk away from the school with a settlement and accept a gagging clause.  So he's gone public...to #TakeAStand.
