STRANRAER YMCA are waiting to hear whether their efforts in a basketball hoop-shoot have secured the organisation a place in the Guinness Book of Records.

The group of 65 were just one of 82 YMCA teams across the world taking part on Saturday to set the record for the most hoops attempted and they were at it between 10am and 6pm at Stair Park.

But the results won’t be out for a couple of weeks, and then they must be re-checked before a record can be declared (or otherwise).
