LAURENCE McCONNELL 1945-2015

"Laurence McConnell passed away on the 5th August 2015 after a battle with cancer that has gone on for almost 2 years. Laurence was one of the best known lifters in the Masters and was a member of both the World and European Masters Hall of Fame. He was also extremely well liked by everyone who knew him and we will all miss his big smile and his record breaking lifts on the platform.

Laurence telephoned me often over the years and this continued during his long battle with cancer. Typical of the man his first words to me on the telephone were always, “how are you Bill?”. The world and weightlifting will be poorer for his absence.

Our deepest sympathy and condolences to his wife Sadie and all his family who have watched him suffer and supported him.” 
Bill Barton, NWL Chairman

Alan Fairclough

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Alan Fairclough on Wednesday March 20th. For those wishing to attend, the funeral will be held on Thursday 28th March at 3:30pm at St Paul's Church Adlington, and afterwards at the White Bear Pub Adlington.

Our condolences go out to Alan's family and friends and everyone at Adlington Barbell.

"Alan Fairclough was a successful, domestic and international lifter of the 1960's; Representing his country on numerous occasions both at home and abroad. Alan was well known across the weightlifting community as being one of the strongest weightlifters around, with a personality to match.

With best lifts of 142.5k Clean and Press, 137.5k Snatch and 175k Clean and Jerk at 90k bodyweight, Alan could hold his own with anyone around. In addition to his official lifts he was renowned for the odd and trick lifts he regularly did. Whether it was lifting people above his head, throwing a 140lb breeze block in the air and catching it behind his back, or a 500lb front squat, his power and skill was undoubted. Alan continued this love of feats of strength throughout the years regularly getting Adlington lifters trying all sorts of odd lifts. Less than six months ago Alan had a few lifters in the club trying one handed deadlifts and demonstrated how it should be done with 100k, with no warm up and in his flat cap and coat, that was just Alan.

Aside to his weightlifting career Alan founded Adlington Barbell Club in 1957 with his brothers Gerry and Frank. Adlington Barbell was one of the loves of Alan's life and is still going strong to this day. The corner stone of the club for over 50 years, Alan coached hundreds of lifters and helped them achieve countless titles and records. Anyone coached by Alan will attest to his ability to get the best out of his lifters. He had an unexplainable talent for watching a lifter and dissecting their technique and with a few small changes improving their lifts. Over and above his technical ability, Alan was an extraordinary motivator. He naturally connected with his lifters and created a bond with them that enabled him to get the very best out of each and every one of them. Over the years Alan coached not just weightlifters but also powerlifters and more recently strongmen. He got the best out of them all and all would do anything for him.

Alan was a weightlifter through and through and his love of the 'iron game' as he called it was clear for all to see. His passion for the sport and for getting the best out of people was nothing short of inspiring. Alan is sadly gone, but will never be forgotten and will live on in the countless lifters he has helped over the years. Goodbye Alan the sport is a poorer place without you."

By Jeff Williams from Adlington Barbell.

Northern Weightlifting Under 18 Lifters Excel at Empire

Three of our best lifters excelled at the recent British Weight Lifting Under18 contest. Anastasia Michaelas once again showed her determination and consistency with 6 out of 6 lifts finishing with a total of 90kg at just 39Kg bodyweight. After returning from injury Luke Jones finished a respectable 4th place with a total of 173Kg at 65Kg bodyweight. It was no surprise that Rebekah Tiler won the overall Best Female Lifter Award on the day with her fantastic lifts of 72Kg Snatch and 93Kg Clean & Jerk. Not only were these new NWL Records across all age groups but British U14 and British U15 records for the 63Kg class. Congratulations to all 3 lifters but also to their coaches Eddie Halstead and Andrew Michaelas.
