WEIGHTLIFTING: ELLESMERE Port hosted the North West Counties' Championships for the third consecutive year on Sunday at the Oasis Centre on Coronation Road.
There was a double success for the home club as Stanney High School pupils Stephen Lyth, 14, and Daniel Rawlinson, 15, bagged gold in the 69kg and 62kg sections respectively.
Instructor Gwilym Parry said: 'Both lads are delighted to have won their divisions and they were up against some good opposition. Everybody really enjoyed themselves, both competitors and spectators, and we're looking forward to this being a regular event now.'
A total of 25 lifters took part with other entrants coming from Manchester's Wright Robinson Sports College and the West Wythenshawe club.
Weightlifting training takes place at the Oasis Centre on Mondays and Tuesdays between 7-9pm and on Sundays between 10am-noon.
