Pershore's premier aim
1:30pm Thursday 8th August 2013 in Sport
PERSHORE Phoenix Dragon Boat Club will compete in round five of the British Dragon Boats Association Premier League at London’s Albert Dock on Sunday.
Phoenix are currently sixth in the table just two years after being mid-table in Standard League, the next level down.
Club chairman Geoff Munson said: “It is great for the club and for the region. The guys have really trained hard and deserve their success.
“We are a mixed crew with a wide age range and it has been pleasing to see their efforts rewarded. The team have reached three major Plate finals in their last three outings, coming first in the last race meeting at Exeter.”
Member Jan Evans is pictured above at the Exeter event.
Pershore Phoenix train at Arden Sailing Club at 9.30am on Sunday mornings and from the Barbourne headquarters of the Fifth Worcester Sea Scouts on Wednesdays at 7pm. Anyone wishing to try the sport can contact club captain Andrew Forrest on 01905-455448.
