Hugo is a second year student at Newcastle University and lightweight rower with Newcastle University Boat Club with whom he's managed to attain a number of BUCS medals. In his spare time he studies politics and sociology, but spends the majority of his days on the Tyne or in the gym under the watchful eyes of NUBC's Italian coaches.
Matthew started rowing at the University of Lincoln during his first year of University in 2015. Since then, he's rowed with Trentham Rowing Club before joining Royal Chester (Editor: boo) last year. He's competed in almost every boat imaginable before constructing a crew with his friends and becoming the "top boat throughout the ULRC". Whilst at the University of Lincoln, he's also coached the novices now for two consecutive years.
