Golf: J. Murphy, using a three wood, holed out in one at the 196 yards, par three ninth hole at Brechin Golf Club. He was partnered by D. Southam.

Football: The Brechin Thistle and Brechin Boys select team were determined to come out of a competition with something and did so with goals from Barry Meldrum and Ewan Grieve (2) in their 3-2 win over Arbroath Rancel Select, but their goals would not have come if it had not been for Mark Campbell, Mark Keith and Sandy Gray who was quite outstanding.
