Cricket: Brechin took on Perth at North Inch, Perth on Saturday, May 19. A perfect batting wicket and pitch but the Brechiners put up a dismal performance. The batting will have to improve if Brechin hope to keep up at the top. Too many players chasing after the runs instead of settling themselves in before the run scoring.

Cricket: Brechin faced Blairgowrie on Sunday, May 20, at Blairgowrie. This was a much improved performance by the Brechin batsmen, openers Smith and Christie got off to a good start 44 for the opening partnership when Christie fell caught behind. Smith batted well for an unbeaten 76, although runs were slow to come.
