Records set by local athletes

Arbroath athletes were in competition at Aberdeen over the weekend in the third round of the Petrofac Athletics League.

There were many excellent performances, most notably from Under-12 girl Gemma Watt, who set a new Petrofac record in the shot-putt with a throw of 5.63 and Under-14 athlete Joel McFarlane who broke the long-jump club record with a leap of 5.00m.

Strong performances from Callum Edwards, Michael Downie and Dave Williamson saw the senior men being able to maintain their top spot even although they had only three athletes competing for the points needed.
