Football: Arbroath SC, 2; Brechin Vics, 3.
Play was pretty even in the difficult conditions. Wood put Vics ahead. SC, fought back and Low had a goal disallowed for offside, Low, however equalised in the 44th minute. Walker put the homesters ahead from the spot after a Swan header was handled on the line. Vics, however, had a shock for Arbroath when Souter and Cameron scored within two minutes.

Football: Regional Councillor Wallace Thom, who admits he knows nothing about football, has been appointed chairman of Brechin Vics football club for a year to help them buy their ground a second time. He will have the help on the committee of District Councillor John Thomson.
