Galashiels swimmer Beth Johnston has been named Lothian Disability Young Sportsperson of the Year.

Beth, who has finally earned her classification of S10, SB9 and SM10, meaning she is eligible for the Scottish disability swim team, was nominated for the award as she trains with Lothian Racers in Penicuik.

Head coach Don Macfarlane put her name forward and says the transformation in one year has been immense, due to “commitment, hard work, listening and natural talent”.

Mum Louise says the support of the Rowan Boland Memorial Trust has been vital in her development.
