GB call-up for Alice

Joseph Bulmer

BIDEFORD student Alice Jackson, has been selected, with just seven other rowers in the country, to train as part of a Great Britain Junior Eight crew at Caversham later this month.

Alice, a sixth former at Kingsley School, has been a consistent prizewinner with Kingsley and Bideford Blues rowing crews.

Tina Robertson, Alice’s coach at Kingsley, has also been invited to the training programme by Richard Boulton, whose Great Britain Junior Ladies’ team won gold earlier this year at the Junior World Championships.
