SEVEN members of the Parkhead and Wansbeck Powerlifting Club’s junior squad have been successful in competition.

The squad, who operate out of the Hirst Welfare Centre in Ashington, took part in the British Powerlifting Championships in Coventry.

And they were well rewarded with four winners, a second and a third in their respective categories.

The squad is steadily growing in numbers, as is the popularity of training with weights, but there is always room for more lifters of any age or ability with the club.

Training takes place on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings at the centre under the guidance of senior coach Fred Mackenzie.

Anyone interested in joining the club can contact Fred on (01670) 857037.
