Henley juniors bag a brace of wins
Published 27/05/14



HENLEY Rowing Club’s junior crews came away from the Maidenhead Junior Regatta on Sunday with a brace of wins to add to their successful season.

Four out of the five crews entered reached their respective finals, with two crews coming home with winners’ medals.

The boys’ J13A division coxed quad of Tom Crook, Jack Spiers, Oliver Taylor, Henry Peters and cox Joe Edwards had a straight final against a Guildford boys’ crew and beat them easily.

The J13B division had races throughout the day, and the Henley crew of Jake Collins, Connor Brown, Georgia Brown — an honorary boy on the day as allowed by the rules for this division — Joe Edwards and Jack Spiers as cox raced four times to meet a Guildford boat in the final.

In one of the final races of the day, the Henley crew took the opportunity to capitalise on their A division team-mates win over Guildford earlier and they commanded the race to win by just over a length. The WJ13A division coxed quad of Felicity Parfitt, Jess Arlett, Sophia Hahn, Amelia Crick and cox Emilene Warner reached their final to compete against old adversaries Headington School. The crew had beaten the Headington boat in the first round, but the school performed well in the repechage to meet Henley again in the final. The Henley crew led for most of the 500-metre course but were unfortunate to lose out to a late charge by Headington. The WJ13B division coxed quad crew of Livvy Peterson, Isabel Bach, Esther Morgan, Ruby Borg and Maya Andrews with Bobbi Miles as cox reached the final after four rounds. In a closely fought race, the Henley girls lost by half a length to Guildford Rowing Club.


Speaking after the wins, Henley junior coach Pete Nickless said: “Maidenhead junior regatta is the first opportunity for our new, young athletes to demonstrate their racing ability and I’m delighted to see them win against some very strong clubs and schools.

“We have an enthusiastic J13 squad, they’ve worked hard over the winter during the floods, and it’s great to take two wins from the regatta.”
