Cricket: In their final Union fixture Brechin had to win to secure their position as League runners-up behind Arbroath. This they did convincingly by eight wickets.
The outstand feature of the day was when Brechin’s “Scottish” colt, Gordon Smith, completed a highly distinguished season by scoring his 1000th run.

Football: Brechin Vics, 2; Forfar East End ,6.
East End were ahead in 19 minutes when an indirect free kick from Craig to Cargill was deflected past Gyles. Greenhill made it two before halftime. After the interval Greehill netted twice for a hattrick. Murdoch netted the fifth before Archibald and Beedie pulled a couple back from the home side. Murdoch completed the victory three minutes from time.
