Our Under-21 side were given a unique opportunity to hear from one of the country’s Olympic heroes recently.

Mark Hunter, who won rowing gold for Great Britain at the Beijing Olympics in 2008, following that up with silver at London 2012, gave up his afternoon to give a talk to the group.

It’s a key stage in the young careers of our U21 players, with many on the brink of first team football either at the Lane or on loan at other clubs.

The insight the group would have received from somebody who made it to the top of his sporting profession will no doubt be invaluable.
