Thursday 22 May 2014

Congratulations to Rose Manger, Annabel Foulger, Jinny Price-Owen, Jane King and cox Beth Grech, who won gold in the British Rowing Masters Championships on Sunday 18th May, racing for Pengwern Boat Club.

Rose Manger is a Learning Support teacher at Shrewsbury. Annabel Foulger, who rowed for her college (Newnham, Cambridge) and has been involved in the sport on and off ever since, is wife of Dr Tim Foulger, Head of Geography at the School. They are coached by Nathan Williams, who also coaches girls’ rowing at Shrewsbury.

The Championships took place in glorious sunshine at the National Water Sports Centre at Holme Pierrepoint Lake, Nottingham. Racing for a kilometre in a Women’s Masters E coxed 4, they beat Monmoth and Bewdley in the final, despite having to give them a ten-second start.

They are now in training to race at Masters Henley in July.
