Local schoolboys rowing for Molesey Schools Rowing Association saw off 42 of the UK's top teams to win the national junior sculling Head of the River event at Henley last Wednesday.

The boys, all aged 14, made light of the wet and windy conditions to triumph by more than 11 seconds, following on from their recent success in the Hampton Head.

Their next target is the national schools regatta at Nottingham in May.
