The Home Nations Powerlifting Championships, hosted by Parkhead Powersports Club at the Hirst Welfare Centre in Ashington, was attended by lifters from as far away as south Wales, Belfast, Bedford and the Orkney Islands.

They competed in for England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales for the first place trophy, which was eventually won by England for the second year running.

Next year’s event will take place in south Wales.

The members of the Parkhead club thanked everyone who attended and made the competition a huge success, with a high standard of lifting across the board.
