Pitreavie athlete Lisa O'Neill set a new Scottish record as she helped Kingdom Athletic win the opening match in the UK Youth Development League. She was one of many winners from the Dunfermline-based club who made full use of home advantage to ensure Kingdom came out on top against teams from Doncaster, Preston, Leeds, North Wales and Liverpool at Pitreavie on Sunday.

Kingdom Athletic is a joint team comprising athletes from Pitreavie, Fife AC and Dundee Hawkhill Harriers, and their victory puts them top of Premier 2 as they bid to secure a place in the top division.

Paul Allan, team manager, said: "I am delighted with the team's efforts in dominating the opening match. The athletes showed great determination and spirit. "The debutants all stepped up in class and showed that they are ready for the challenge of aiming for promotion. "Well done to all of the athletes and we look forward to the next match in Doncaster on 1st June."
