Cricket: The Town Council’s Finance Sub-Committee have granted Brechin Cricket Club a lease of the Guthrie Park cricket ground for a period of 99 years at a rent of £50, which will be reviewed every ten years.

Football: Brechin Vics lost out to Kirrie Thistle in the final of the Arbroath and District Cup. Orrock put Thistle ahead from an acute angle. The homesters continued to press but lost chances. So did Vics, Beedie and Billingham the chief culprits. There was little between the teams in the second half. Smyth scored the goal that gave Kirrie the Cup.

Golf: Angus Boys had a convincing win over North and North East Boys beating them by seven games to three.
