Samuel is quick off the mark!

Samuel Ashadu (age 11) and his younger brother Ethan (age 10) are both keen members of Salford Metropolitan Athletics Club in Eccles. Last weekend Samuel competed in the Greater Manchester Championships at Old Trafford and claimed a gold medal in the Under 11’s – Seniors 200m sprint. This follows on swiftly from his win in the Northern Athletics League held earlier in the month in Whitehaven, when Samuel took the gold for both the 100m and 200m sprint for the Under 13’s.

Both brothers attend Bridgewater School and are proving to be great assets to the Athletics teams. Bridgewater has been enjoying a number of recent successes on the sports field as both their Under 16’s and Under 14’s football teams have been winners of the Independent School Association North West Championships this year. Not to be outdone by the footballers, a number of equally gifted pupils have also enjoyed regional, national and international success across a range of sports including basketball, fencing, rugby, gymnastics and athletics.

Team participation is an ethos that the Head, Mrs Judy Nairn, has always been keen to foster at the school and explains “Everyone has the chance to pursue passions, to participate, to be part of a group: to develop confident relationships but to be unique. We are absolutely delighted to support any of our children in fulfilling their dreams”.
