The 21 years old Mr Conisbrough titleholder is now Mr Sheffield


Body building enthusiast David Williams, whose aim is to become Mr Britain, flexes 18 inch biceps recently at the Locarno ballroom Sheffield, impressed the judge, beauty Queen Pat England – Jr Miss Britt 1963 – and he has a new title, two months after becoming Mr Conisbrough in a competition organised at a local public house.

Mr Conisbrough became Mr Sheffield on the occasion of the Sheffield Orange Ball, when each of the guests had to bring an orange for the children of a local children’s hospital, but it was only by chance that David, a British railways fireman, even took part.

Hurried Decision.

He told the “South Yorkshire Times” this week, “I knew nothing about the Ball or the Mr Sheffield contest until the evening it took place.

“Then the leader of Parkgate youth club, Michael Ray, told me. It was 7:30 PM when I got to know, and I was there and entered by nine o’clock,” said David.

The next step for the young Swinton muscleman is in the direction of Bradford, where New York’s to compete for the Mr West riding tightly in October.

If he does well in that contest the aim is to become Mr North East Britain, and automatically qualify to compete in the nationwide Mr Britain event
