Best performer for the weekend was David Sheridan with five gold medals in the 100m, 200m, 400m, 90m hurdles and 200m hurdles.

Joel Guy and Matthew Berrington captured three golds while Aidan Wallace and Jordan Gusman won two golds. Jordan broke the 800m record in a time of 2:05.8.

Sawtell's race walking brigade of Fiona Martin, Natalia Robson, Emma Robson and Kelsey Knight all won gold with Tim Martin finishing a creditable third.
