Henley sculler Redman impresses at GB trials
Published 06/05/14



HENLEY Rowing Club’s Leon Redman attended the GB team junior trials on Sunday at the National Water Sports Centre in Nottingham.

In the initial ranking trial, the Henley sculler was ranked 22nd, but in the side-by-side racing, his competitiveness shone through and he raced to third position in the C final, giving him a top 15 position overall.

Redman’s ambition of a call up to the GB junior squad will face a final hurdle in July when the final selections are made.

Club captain Nick Mead said: “We’re delighted to see yet another dedicated Henley junior rower perform well in the GB selection process.

“We have a proud history of developing junior talent and it would be wonderful to see Leon achieve his aim of representing his country in the club’s 175th anniversary year.”


Henley senior women raced at Hammersmith Amateur Regatta on Saturday.

The newly formed double of Victoria Carver and novice Lizzie Williams were racing for the first time and made an impressive start to the regatta season with an emphatic win against London Rowing Club in the women’s IM3 category. Gaining an early lead on the 1,400-metre course, they steered a clear line to the staggered finish, and won with an easily verdict.

In the women’s IM1 quad category, the Henley crew reached the final against Latymer School Boat Club, losing narrowly in worsening conditions.
