Football: Angus General Purposes Committee has agreed unanimously to give a civic reception to Brechin City FC for their achievement in gaining promotion to Division 1. Councillor Robert Forester, Forfar, said: “They have done so well and we are rightly proud of them.”

Football: Stenhousemuir lined the entrance to the pitch at Ochilview to applaud Brechin City, promotion winners, and, virtually, Second Division champions, before Saturday’s game. In the next 90 minutes they must have been greatly surprised to find how easily they were able to hold the top-of-the Leaguers to a goalless draw. However, the point was enough to confirm Brechin City as champions of the Second Division.
