Lurgan Amateur Swimming Club

LASC History

Lurgan Amateur Swimming Club was established in the late 1960s . The club originated from a group of swimmers known as the Young Swimmers Alliance of Ulster (YSAU) which was set up shortly after the opening of the new leisure centre in Robert Street, Lurgan, in 1965. 

From the late 60s to 70s, Frank Bradley and latterly, Harry Russell, served as Head Coaches and through their own drive, determination and expertise, quickly developed the club into a competitive swimming team. Notable swimmers during this early period included Cecil Russell who competed at the European Championships and Commonwealth Games, Kenny Burns who competed for Ulster and Ireland and, for sometime, held the national record for 100m Freestyle, and John Irwin who was Ulster Champion for the 100m butterfly.
