Football: Brechin City, 2; Berwick Rangers, 0.

City scored their first home League win in atrocious weather conditions at Glebe Park on Saturday. Incidentally three of City’s six points to date have been at the expense of Berwick - earlier they held Rangers to a draw at Berwick. On Saturday they thoroughly deserved their win and the small but lusty crowd were quick to show their appreciation of this new look City team which untiring on the heavy pitch fought all the way with great spirit, contesting every ball and always on the run. Brechin’s goals game from Miller, who netted in the seventh minute, and Clark, who secured the points in the 69th minute.
