Daniel Tutt bagged third place in the right arm -105kg category and the club’s newest member, Darren Stark, also came third in the left arm -73kg category in only his second competition.

Club member Chris Fellows said: “The day was fantastic and we also had a showcase of the top 12 elite pro arm wrestlers from across the country competing for a title and prize money.

“President Paul “Mighty” Maiden deserves a huge thank you from every one of us. Without him we wouldn’t have this new federation, he has done so much for this sport and we hope he carries on for many years to come.
