Golf: With a net 55 Dick Robertson, Brechin (playing off 18) won the handicap section and the Christieson Cup in the open golf tournament at Taranty on May 24. He was six strokes ahead of the runner-up, D. Bell, Forfar. Three players with returns of 70 tied for the scratch trophy, the Uig Villa Cup, which went to A. B. May with the best last three holes. The other two were J. L. Clark, Stonehaven and W. Taylor, Brechin.

Football: Brechin VICS were first to go ahead through Boath when they travelled to face Lochee United. However, they failed to cash in on subsequent chances. Stewart equalised for the home side and in the second half Airlie added two. Beedie had Vics’ second goal. The defeat means relegation for the Vics.
