Basketball: For the first time Brechin Basketball Club has entered the Scottish Cup. Only the top eight Scottish teams gain automatic qualification into this competition with all other teams having to qualify through Section play-offs.

Shooting: Some of Scotland’s top shooters gathered at Kippen Gun Club, Stirlingshire on October 8, to compete in the final of The Scotsman/Winchester Clay Target championship. Among those taking part - all had qualified at previous shoots - were Graham Ellis, Wards of Keithock, Brechin, and Charles W. Grimm, Burghill Cottage.

Football: Brechin vics, 1; Coupar Angus, 1. M. Rae scored from a penalty to put Vics ahead in the second half. Near the end, Coupar fought back to get the equaliser.
