THREE rowers from Great Marlow School Boat Club were picked to represent England in the Home International Regatta - with one picking up two gold medals.

Sam Haynes was part of the teams that were victorious in the junior men's coxed four and the eights events at last weekend's regatta in Cork.

He had been picked for the event after five days of trials in Nottingham.

Ross Honey and Dan Magnussen were also picked to race in the senior men's lightweight pair, despite normally racing at J16 level. They were chosen for international selection after a recent victory at the National Schools Regatta.

England won both of the junior categories, while Scotland took both of the senior titles.

Head Coach Fergus Murison said: "This is a tremendous achievement for all three boys and Great Marlow School Boat Club. They worked hard for their places within the England team and thoroughly deserved the opportunity to represent their country."
