Holbeach Youth Centre staged the first winter session for Lincs Throws Academy's shot and discus coaching.

Lead coach Geoff Capes and his son Lewis spent two hours with teenagers then held another session for seniors on Sunday.

Holbeach legend Geoff - who was inducted into England Athletics' hall of fame on Saturday night - said: "We had a good turnout with more to come because some people are playing other sports such as rugby."

Training dates are October 28, November 11 and 25, December 9, January 13, February 10 and March 10.

Coaching for under-13 to 18 athletes is 10am to noon and senior sessions run from noon to 2pm. The cost is £5 per session.

There will be graded indoor shot competitions on January 20, February 17 and March 17.

Entry is £7.50 for juniors (11-18 years) and seniors. Registration times are 9.30am and 10.30am respectively.
