Football: Brechin City 1, Cowdenbeath 1.
The visitors did most of the pressing in the opening stages, but the City defence held out and gradually tamed Menzies and Mathews. Brechin got their goal in the 49th minute, with Tocher scoring from the spot. An equaliser came in the closing minutes, with Guthrie scoring in a goalmouth scramble.
The Town Council earlier agreed to plant trees on the spare ground to the east of the Sewage Works. This ground was now having to be used for the disposal of dried sludge, the Surveyor reported to the Sewage Works Committee.
This sludge being poisonous, trees could not be planted.
On the motion of Councillor Pirnie, Convener of the Sewage Works Committee, it was agreed to recommend that only a screen of trees be planted at an estimated cost of £40.
Football: Brechin Victoria 3, Kinnoull 0.
In the first half Vics’ defence stood out well against Kinnoull pressure. The Vics’ ‘keeper was unable to get at a Whyte strike, but the ball flashed past the post. In the second half, Vics were right on top with Marnie and Monro (2) the goal scorers.
The minibus which Brechin High School plans to buy has jumped in price by over £1000, from £2300 to £3350 Angus Education Committee was told last week. The Education Committee had agreed to meet the whole cost of the bus until the School had raised funds to pay their half share. The School had approached the county Committee as to whether they would be willing to make a large contribution.
The Education Committee has agreed to give £1500 provided that the minibus is bough in the current financial year.
