Members combined to win gold in the boys’, girls’ and mixed junior relays, while Poppy Shipley came out on top in the J16 girls’ event.

And Nicki Glen won the 55-59 women’s 2000m in under eight minutes after a tough autumn schedule.

Glen said: “The hardest thing is keeping healthy, so many people with winter colds coughing and gagging on trains. I should’ve been sponsored by Berrocca!”

William Buchanan won silver in the J16 boys event, while Jamie Gare took silver in the sixth form boys’ 500m, and there were bronze medals for Harriet Drake-:ee and Martha Bullen in the J16 girls category.

Ely captain Duncan McCulloch congratulated all who took part and said the performances from club rowers “did us all proud”.
