Football: Brechin City have fixed up two public pre-season trials at Glebe Park. The first is on July 30, against an Aberdeen side of first and second-team players. On August 7, they meet a Dundee XI.

Bowls: Brechin Bowling Club have this year scored a unique double in having won both the Forfarshire and the Angus singles trophies. 
The winners are both well-known bowlers. Leslie Sim has been a consistent member of the public green for years and always among the honours, while Syd Ormerod has also had a successful career in bowling. 
Both are members of the Angus team and it is interesting to note that Syd also won the Forfarshire trophy a number of years ago.
