NORTHWICH Rowing Club achieved 10 wins across all junior age groups at the Bridgnorth Regatta.

A couple of notable wins came from the J14 boys quad who had to borrow a cox from Pengwern to beat a strong Stourport crew; and the women's J16 eight who raced a Clifton College eight.

Crews from Northwich went to Nottingham for the British Masters event and in poor conditions just missed out on the medals.

MOTORSPORT: Northwich rider Peter Founds and his sidecar partner Jevan Walmsley are home safe and sound from the Isle of Man TT races.

Heartbreakingly, some are not.

The dangers involved in motorsport have arguably never been more on the mind than these past few weeks, with five competitors having lost their lives while pursuing the sport they love in the TT.

Founds and Walmsley were taking part in the event’s second sidecar race in which a father and son from Crewe were killed on Friday.

Their second-place finish, after the result was called following the red flag, matters little in the grand scheme of things.

A post on the Team Founds Racing 72 Facebook page reads: “Thanks again to all the team, sponsors, family and friends for your ongoing support and sending our love and thoughts to those teams and families who are dealing with the terrible tragedy that our sport can sometimes bring #gonebutneverforgotten #alwaysinourhearts”

For the record, Founds and Walmsley also got on to the podium in the first @3wheelingtt Sidecar TT Race, coming home 0.11 seconds behind second-placed Manx lads Callum and Ryan Crowe who were beaten over the line by Tom and Ben Birchall.

The Crewe father-and-son Roger Stockton, 56, and Bradley, 21, had been on the final lap of the second sidecar race of the TT when the fatal accident happened at Ago’s Leap.

Cesar Chanal died on Saturday in a crash during a sidecar race. Welsh rider Mark Purslow was killed in qualifying the previous week and Northern Ireland’s Davy Morgan died after an accident in last Monday’s Supersport Race.
