Two Wallingford RC crews won bronzes medals in the British Junior Championships at Nottingham.

The club’s squad of 11 crews not only won two medals, but also contested numerous A finals.

The first medal was brought home by the J15 double scull combination of Will Manginon and Max Thompson, coached by Tom Polkey.

Not to be outdone, Wallingford’s girls’ open double scull of Katie Metalli and Alice Walker also claimed a bronze medal, capping a great season for this pairing, whose target was to land a national medal.

City of Oxford’s youngsters sealed a good event for Oxfordshire with two silver medals in the women’s junior and junior 15 doubles.
