YOUNG swimmers from Musselburgh are set to make a splash as coaches of the future with help from a £1,000 cash boost from housebuilder Persimmon Homes East Scotland.

The company is building 473 homes at its Burgh Gate development at Old Craighall and presented the donation to Musselburgh Amateur Swimming Club (MASC) as part of its Community Champions scheme, which provides financial support to charities, organisations and good causes.

TEENAGER Sam Downie has been selected for Great Britain in the World Para Swimming Championships in Madeira in June – and hopes it could be the start of a journey to the Paralympic Games.

He will now represent team GB in S8 400m freestyle, relay, and his favoured 100m backstroke.

The Musselburgh Amateur Swimming Club member was one of six Scots to make the British side heading out to the Portuguese island.

The 16-year-old will make his debut for the British team having impressed at the British Para Swim Meet in Aberdeen last month.
