SELECTORS for the British rowing team have given former Grange School students another chance to impress at an international regatta.

Tom Ford and his younger sister, Emily, are part of a squad named today, Wednesday, for the second World Cup of the campaign next week.

The former retains his place in a men’s eight that won a silver medal at the European Championships earlier this month.

James Rudkin, Tom George, Mohamed Sbihi, Jacob Dawson, Ollie Wynne-Griffith, Mat Tarrant, Josh Bugajski and cox Henry Fieldman complete a line-up for the three-day event at Poznan in Poland.

“With a bit more time to gel as a crew, we’ll get them!” said the 26-year-old after trailing old foes Germany to the finish in Lucerne.

“We only came together for the first time a few weeks ago and have made progress already since then.”

Emily Ford made her senior debut for Great Britain in a women’s four at the same event, ranking sixth in the A final.

She is also part of an unchanged combination with Sara Parfett, Caragh McMurtry and Rebecca Girling.

A second women’s four will feature Polly Swann, who won a silver medal as part of a women’s eight at the Olympic Games in Rio three years ago.

She returns to international competition for the first time since and is joined by Holly Hill, also making her season bow, as well as Sam Courty and Annie Withers who raced as a pair at the European Championships.

Emily said: “We’re excited to race again and have been back to the grind in training to work on things that came to light at the Euros.

“Having a second British four in the same field adds to the challenge.”

Racing in Poznan starts on Friday week, June 21.

“We had some fantastic performances at Lucerne and it’s great to have more of the team racing at the World Cup,” said Brendan Purcell, British Rowing’s director of performance.

“Our priority this year remains qualifying as many boats as possible for the Olympic Games in Tokyo and this regatta is another opportunity to assess where we’re at while testing ourselves against the rest of the world.”
