Being the day after Christmas dinner, Allom Cup was going to be a struggle for many, but the Mens 1st and Novice VIII’s turned up bright and early aiming to finish the term on a high. With the first race of the Mens senior category BL Vs ICSM it was all to play for in the first race, with ICSM unfortunately winning by one seat, and continuing to win the cup.
The novice boat however continued their winning streak form the previous week and beat RUMS, UCL A, UCL B and Royal Holloway to win the novice category. The icing on the cake was their medals being presented by Rio 2016 gold medallist and former UL athlete Paul Bennett from the GB Men’s VIII. With head season approaching, it’s looking to be a hotly contested year. Watch this space.
