A COUPLE of Stratford-upon-Avon Boat Club’s junior rowers claimed gold and silver on the international stage representing their respective nations at different events.

Stratford’s Imogen Hill coxed the Welsh Junior Women’s Eight to a gold medal at the Home International Rowing Regatta.

Hill beat crews from Scotland, Ireland and England at Lough Rinn in Ireland to claim gold with her country.

And Harriet Noyes won two silver medals rowing in the coxless four for Great Britain at the Coupe de la Jeunesse in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

Noyes and her crew beat 14 other nations to come home with two silver medals as the GB team secured overall victory at the event for a second successive year.

Stratford coach, Sam Hill, said: “It’s fantastic to see our athletes medal on the international stage.

“Their achievements represent the constant hard work and dedication the whole squad has put in over the last five years.”
