Much of the success came down to sisters Lucy & Abby Davison with Lucy taking a treble win in the 60m hurdles (10.38s), long jump (4.19m) and shot (7.21m) and Abby showing a clean pair of heels to the opposition with the sprint double in the 60m (8.93s) and 200m (29.5s). Further wins for Elizabeth Thompson (800m, 2:38.3) and Lucy Smith (High Jump, 1.30m) completed a historic clean sweep, never before achieved by a club team.

Eccles received the award alongside showjumper William Funnell and World Class Performance Manager for Showjumping Rob Hoekstra.

The medals were presented by BEF Chairman, Keith Taylor.

She has won four consecutive silver medals in pas de deux, three of these whilst studying at University.
