Arbroath Amateur Boxing Club received a kit donation last week from a former member’s oil services firm.

On Thursday Mark Strachan, managing director of Montrose-based Malos Ltd oil and gas exploration company presented the club with a batch of polo shirts and T-shirts.

The handover took place during a training session at the Community Centre and was accepted by club president Doug Ford

Mr Strachan is a former member of the club and a Scottish schoolboys’ and youth champion who boxed for Scotland at an international level eight times.

He said: “I’m delighted to be able to give something back to a club that was a big part of my life for many years.”
