Football: Brechin Victoria, 2; Forfar Celtic, 2. 
Celtic went ahead in the league cup, section two match, when Bowman slipped the ball between ‘keeper Gyles ‘ legs. 
Gyles, however, was able to finger-tip a header from Bowman over the bar. A shot from Boath was blocked.
Against the run of play Celtic went two up when Ross netted in 64 minutes. Milne upended Norrie in the penalty area and Harvey scored from the spot. 
In 83 minutes Billingham equalised with a great shot from 25 yards.

Bowling: Andrew Barclay won the Public Green championship when he beat Freddy Milne in the final.
