The Committee

Meet the new exec members!  The exec committee is a team of volunteers who have been elected to run the division.

Sam Cadman - YNE Acting Chair:

Hello! Where to start?! I've been actively part of powerlifting since my birthday in 2016! I lift at Doncaster All Rounders and wouldn't have gotten this far without them! I started as a junior and entered my first competition after lifting for just 12 weeks! Signed, sealed and delivered I caught the bug! I went on to volunteering at every competition and just wanted to know more. Refereeing was always an interest of mine and I was lucky enough to pass my divisional refs exam in 2018 and progressed to national in 2020. Hoping to make a difference to the team and help in any way, shape or form! 'All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them' Walt Disney.


Vacancy - YNE Secretary:  


Lisa Liddy - YNE Records Registrar

I have been a member of YNE for over six years now, and entered my first competition in April 2015. I have competed in every British Masters Classic since 2016 and currently hold the YNE M1 -72kg bench record with a press of 80kg. After volunteering on the table for most of my first year, I joined the executive as Records Registrar in December 2015.


Joanne Barnes - YNE DCO:

I've been a member of Doncaster Allrounders and YNE for 10 years. I have been lucky enough to win 8 British titles, 2 classic and 6 equipped. I have lifted at European and World Equipped Championships for team GB, with an overall silver at Euros and bronze at Worlds being my best results. I passed my IPF Cat 2 referee exam in 2018 and am happy to be able to give back to our amazing sport.

Becky Martin – YNE Media Officer:

My first powerlifting competition was in 2016, and since then I have competed in local YNE competitions, been lucky enough to qualify and compete in 2 British Championships and placed 3rd in the British Masters in 2019. 

James McGill - YNE Technical Officer


Amanda Howes – YNE Equipment Manager:

I started powerlifting in 2019 and fell in love with the sport instantly. I competed in my first powerlifting competition with Ynepf in July 2019, achieving first place in the +84kg division. And I have been competing ever since. I own & run a small private PT studio at home and love introducing lifting into peoples lives.

Gemma Surtees - YNE Treasurer:

I started powerlifting in November 2015 and have loved it ever since. I have competed in two national competitions (including the women’s British championships) as well as a few YNE divisionals. I am taking over the role of Treasurer on the committee and I’m hoping my full time job as a Chartered Accountant (and Auditor) will help me with this.
