THREE rowers from the St Neots rowing club have been trying out for inclusion in Great Britain team.

Joanna Fitzsimons, Natalie Bream and Sam Howell all posted respectable times at the trials in Boston and must now wait to see whether they will be invited to attend the GB Squad winter training camps.

Meanwhile, the club was well-represented at the British Indoor Rowing Championships, taking a team of nine competitors and returning with three medals.

Tom Hinsby, in the 60-64 age category, won a gold medal by five seconds in a time of 6:42.6.
