English Indoor Rowing Championships 2017, Manchester Velodrome

Congratulations to the Shropshire Primary Schools Indoor Rowing Team who competed at the English Indoor Rowing Championships last Sunday 5th February 2017. As ever the event was an exciting competition for indoor rowers of all ages in the heady atmosphere of the National Cycling Centre. Longden was strongly represented in the team selection by Keziah Tichford, Miks Treimanis, Nye Crane,  Brandon Sherwood, Conrad Weiner, George Dymock and Maddie Parsons. Of the six medals available for the individual J11 races Shropshire took four including Conrad securing Bronze and George and Maddie both taking Gold as English J11 Champions. All rowers then formed five teams for the relay race. Competing against Y6 and Y7 rowers, we did well to take 4th, 7th, 9th, 12th and 13th places out of 15 entries. Well done to all rowers and a special mention for Brandon who subbed in at the last moment and for Nye And Keziah who unexpectedly found themselves in the individual races due to last minute illness.
