Swimming: Brechin Beavers resumed their club nights after the autumn break with renewed enthusiasm. 
Prior to the break the swimmers held the second round of the Club Shield, a keenly contested competition in which all members participate throughout the year. 
The second heat of the First Division was held at Dundee and although the team was not at full strength, Brechin put up a good show.

Football: Rancel A, 4; Brechin Harp, 1. 
The Harps could do nothing right in this match played in a gale-force wind. There was simply nothing that would go right for them, especially in front of goal, whereas the Rancel team got two goals from deflections.
