Three weeks left to vote for your coach!


Less than three weeks remain to cast your vote in the Perkins Slade Coach, You’re the Best! competition, with two rowing coaches in the running to win £1000 of sports equipment.

James Wilton and Seamus Reynolds lie fourth and fifth on the leader board, with 397 and 375 votes respectively.


Mr. Wilton, who ‘lives and breathes rowing’ as a coach at the University of Worcester Rowing Club, has been nominated for the ‘time, energy, and passion’ he gives to his crews.

Mr. Reynolds, meanwhile, is the ‘inspired’ head coach at Bann Rowing Club in Ireland, who has ‘motivated the entire club, athletes, girls, boys and veterans, parents, administrators and voluntary junior coaches alike’.

The pair currently sit some 200 and 300 votes behind the overall leader – Ice skating coach Andrea McCully – respectively, but there is still time to make sure that a rowing club benefits from the £1000 sports equipment on offer.

Votes can be cast until Tuesday 31 January, at which point the coach with the most votes will be crowned Coach, You’re the Best! champion.
