Two of the most able young scullers from Durham Amateur Rowing Club attended early identification trials for the national rowing squad on February 21st.
The two 16 year-olds took part in trials held in a single scull over a 5000 metre head course at Boston, Lincolnshire. Both did very well and have now been called upon to attend a crew sculling course at Nottingham in April. Both events are part of the performance pathway towards GB Junior Squad representation in 2016/17.
Both scullers went on to attend local trials for the Northern regional team to compete at the Junior Inter Regional Regatta at Nottingham on April 25th, and each won their respective races.
