Lindsay Clark the Edzell golfer - though he was entered from Montrose Victoria Club - won the Montrose Open championship last week. He beat the holder Billy Hogg, Royal Aberdeen, by one hole in the 36-hole final on Saturday.

In their friendly against Aberdeen Colts, City, in their first game of the new season, put up quite a promising show and indeed with more luck and a greater readiness to seize chances might have forced a draw. The new recruits gave a good account of themselves. Jed Reilly, in goal for the first time, brought off several capital saves. McNicol, Wilson and Kinnes combined well and made some fine attacking moves, which deserved to get somewhere. Full-time - Brechin City, 2; Aberdeen A, 4.
