Works Fours Rowing Competition

The drpgroup are proud to announce that four team members took part in the Works Fours competition at Stourport Boat Club on Saturday 14th June. The team went head to head with Ockers Outcasts in the Grand Final, but drpteam 3 were overall victors and claimed the Works Fours trophy for 2014. It was a great day for the rowing and many other drpteam members took the time out to come down and support, witnessing the win for themselves.

James Hough, warehouse technician who coxed and coached the team, was pleased with the end result as he said “rowing is all about unity and a boat couldn’t move without a team working together. This win was down to the dedication and hard work the team put in as a group. In fact everyone who took part on Saturday trained extremely hard and delivered on the day and as always, the rest of the drpteam came together to support all our teams. It was also nice to have our names back on the trophy as we did following our last victory back in 2008. My thanks go to our teams for bringing it home again.”

On the day five teams of four comprised of drpteam members from various divisions across the business competed. The drpgroup and the rest of the team would like to say huge congratulations to:
