Football: Brechin City,2; Ayr United, 1.
A first senior goal by Doug Scott earned a fourth successive Division One win for City on Saturday, when Ayr United were the visitors at Glebe Park. They maintained their place in the League third slot behind Partick Thistle and Kilmarnock. The homesters however found Ayr the toughest opposition so far. Though they managed to bring off a one-goal win, manager Fleming shook his head at the missed chances which should have put the issue beyond doubt much sooner.

Football: Brechin Harp, 10; Hillside, 2.
Another easy win for the Harp who are playing really well. Scorers were N. Pucci (3), D. Goodwin (3), N. West, B. Reid (2) and P. Carr.
