Commonwealth Games England have today announced that heptathlete Morgan Lake has withdrawn from Team England and will be replaced by 2010 bronze medallist Grace Clements (Coach Ian Grant).

Lake will now focus on the World Junior Championships, whilst Clements of Dartford, will join up with the England squad at their holding camp in Manchester before heading to Glasgow.

Grace Clements said: ""It is great to be back on the Team having medalled four years ago. I have been through a tough four years, so this is like a dream come true - a fairly tale ending to my career. I'm very grateful for this opportunity to compete in the Commonwealth Games."

Morgan Lake said: "This has been an extremely difficult decision for me to take as I was honoured to be selected to Team England, but ultimately its right for me and my development to focus on the World Juniors. I want to wish Grace and the rest of Team England all the very best and I'll be cheering them all on."

Team England Chef de Mission Jan Paterson said: "We would like to welcome Grace, our heptathlon bronze medallist from Delhi, into Team England and I hope her final preparations for Glasgow go well. We know it was a tough decision for Morgan to withdraw from the team, but we send her our very best wishes for the World Junior Athletics Championships."
