Golf: Miss Nancy Duncan, Brechin, is this year’s Angus Ladies’ County Association champion of champions. From a field of nine club champions at Montrose, she had rounds of 84 and 79 to aggregate 163, two strokes better than the title holder, Miss Kathleen Lackie, Montrose Royal Albert, who was 81, 84-165.

Football: North end, 3; Brechin Vics, 2.
North End got ahead and Vics were unable to catch up. Leitch put Vics one up in 25 minutes. Deuchars equalised and Martin sent the visitors ahead. Leitch had a good drive which hit the bar. Mellon made up for previous misses when he netted a good solo goal in 60 minutes. Boath reduced the leeway with a header in 75 minutes.
