Football: Brechin Victoria, 3; Forfar Albion, 5.
Albion dominated the early stages of this League game at Nursery Park and Foote put them ahead. Vics fought back to equalise but first McNicol and then Foote added goals for the visitors.
Albion slackened of in the second half sufficiently for Vics to make the score three all. Albion, however, added two goals to win by a decisive 5-3.

A century by Ewan Massie laid the foundation for an eight wicket win for Brechin in the Sondico Strathmore Union at Mannofield. After Gordon Morton was out for eight, Massie and Dave Thomson put on 173 runs for the second wicked before Thomson was bowled for 56.
