Fraser Burnett’s century for Arbroath United in the Scottish Cup on Sunday v Stoneywood/Dyce (168 from 138 balls, 13 fours, 7 sixes) is the highest recorded by an Arbroath United player at Lochlands since records began being kept in 1962.

This replaced Kevin Ritchie’s 164 which was recorded against St Modans on June 17, 1995.

In the same period this is the third highest score by an Arbroath United player home or away.

It is behind Neil Burnett 180 v Perthshire, September 1, 1990, and A.J. Williams 175 v Lawside Academy FPs, July 1, 1989.
