Junior Inter-Regionals at Nottingham - Saturday 27th April

Our J15 boys were invited to take part in the Junior Inter- Regionals. Barrie Blake, their coach , selected 4 boys to row in a J15.4+.
Up until now the boys have spent all their time sculling and so vey quickly had to adapt to rowing.
The crew only had 4 weeks training before race day!

They did very well, coming 3rd in their heat which got them through to the 'A' final. In the final they came 5th behind the big clubs - Marlow, Shrewsbury, Monmouth and Westminster.

From bow - Alex Hine, Mike Lundy, George Lawton, Chris Malley.
