Pat Higgins

It is with sadness I have to let you all know that the First Lady of Scottish Powerlifting has passed away early this morning.

Pat Higgins has played more than an integral part in keeping Scottish Powerlifting running in recent times and even in sickness was still helping out in the running of competitions.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Campbell and the rest of Pats family at this time.

Pats funeral details are as follows:

St James’ RC Church

Greenock Road


There will be a service on Thursday night at 6pm followed by the funeral service at 10am on Friday morning.

Anti Doping Update

We at SP have read read with interst the results of the recent drug tests carried out by NIPF, we fully support the action taken by NIPF to rid our sport of cheats of any kind and provide a level playing field for those who take to the platform.

We hope this discourages lifters from attempting to lift with our lifters who put in the hard work to improve on the platform.

We are determined to cleanse the sport and have set in motion plans for drug testing to be carried out in Scotland this year.
