Linlithgow kayak racing club members Sean and Amy Redmond have been selected to represent Great Britain in Slovakia later this month.

They will compete at the Piestany Regatta after good performances at the GB team selection event at Nottingham at the weekend.

Sean will be a member of the under-23 team in crew boats and Amy will compete at under-18 level.

Good performances in Slovakia could see the Linlithgow duo in line for further national recognition.

There was further good news for the kayak club when Finn Cadell and Oliver Bohle were promoted to the boys’ B division for their next event in June.

Said a club spokeswoman: ‘‘This is great news for the Scottish squad and in particular for Linlithgow.’’
