Swimmer Picked to Represent East Midlands
The Year 10 student has been selected to represent the region in the 100m breaststroke after posting the fastest times in his age group this season.
He will compete against top swimmers at the event at the Liverpool Aquatic Centre.
He also has a place in the four x 100m freestyle relay and the medley relay.
He said: “This is probably the biggest race that I have been in and I will not know until I get there how good the competition are.
“When I see their personal best times on the record card I will know what I am up against.”
Matthew, who earlier this year won county titles in the 100m and 200m breaststroke, is currently training seven days a week at a pool in Northampton.
