Diving

Silver for Nathan

LOCAL lad Nathan Gevers was one of three divers from Dundee City Aquatics Diving competing in the Shipley Novices competition in Yorkshire last weekend.

Nathan took silver in the boys’ 14-16 age group and although the other two divers, Samantha Stockman in the girls’ 10-11 years and Ryan Jennings in the boys’ 8-9 years, didn’t get into the medals, both were well placed in large entries.

Football

Gowfers’ Gamble

THERE were no winners when the weekly Gowfers’ Gamble draw took place on Monday evening.

The numbers drawn were 3, 5, 9, 10, 14 and 16. Two consolation prizes of £25 go to

G. Fraser and R. Gibb, both Carnoustie.

The jackpot will be £2,750 for the next draw on Monday (March 19).

Marathon

24-hour extravaganza

ARBROATH Academy will host their third, and biggest, 24-hour football and netball marathon over the Thursday and Friday, March 29/30.

Kicking off at 10 a.m. on the Thursday, over 100 pupils will take to the school games hall for the pile-up of fixtures throughout the morning, afternoon, evening, overnight and into the morning until noon the following day, Friday, March 30.

Teams will compete across both sports and aim to raise over £3,000 for local and school charities. Organiser and PE teacher Christie Morgan said: “We are very excited about this year’s event as it is our biggest yet. Nearly a quarter of our school will be involved and we are delighted to be inspiring people to take part while raising money for good causes. Our school has a tradition of physical activity, sport and fair play, all of which we will show during this crazy 24-hour period.”

Winners will receive medals and trophies across both sports for fair play, top scorers, male and female player of the tournament, as well as first, second and third place teams overall.
