At the Eastern Counties Indoor Championships in King's Lynn, Dan threw a personal best 15.98m, to win the under-20 shot putt.

Making his return from illness, Martin took first place in the under-17 shot with a throw of 13.91m.

And youngest brother Roger, competing in his first indoor championships, performed extremely well to take second in the under-15 shot with a throw of 8.49m.

Dan and Martin are now setting their sights on the AAA Indoor Championships in Birmingham on March 4 and 5. They start the outdoor season on April 9 at the Peterborough Open meeting.
