Congratulations to Martin and Joe who have achieved selection to Team Scotland for the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. Massive achievement and also a huge well done to Kerry Wood and her coaching staff who have worked tirelessly with these swimmers over the past few years. To have two swimmers on Team Scotland is a fantastic endorsement of our club and the philosophies we work to. Once again congratulations. Go Team Scotland.
