Former power-lifting champion wins pools

FORMER world power-lifting champion Raymond Fraser made a lift with a difference last week - a cheque for over six thousand pounds.

Lucky Raymond (52) won a whopping £6354.80 when his numbers came up on the Rangers' pools.

Last week he travelled up to Ibrox to collect the cheque and was taken by car from the stadium to the club's new training complex at Auchenhowie.

He was given a guided tour before receiving his cheque from Rangers' Italian defender Lorenzo Amoruso.

Raymond, who lives at Oakland Avenue in Stranraer, won the world power-lifting championship in 1999 and was picked for the British team competing in Canada at the moment.

Costs involved in the trip, including the time Raymond would have had to take off from his job as a joiner, persuaded him to decline the offer of travelling to Canada.

Now he is looking forward to next year's championships in Argentina and will use some of his pools winnings to fund a trip out there.
