Football: Brechin Vics, 1; North End, 3. 
Goals by Preston and Taylor (2) put North End on their winning way. Boath got a consolation goal for Vics.

Football: Brechin City, 0; Clydebank, 1.
City returned to league business on Saturday after a fortnight’s break. The Bankies had little difficulty in keeping the homesters on the defensive throughout the first half. Only positive marksmanship and safe handling by Reilly kept them from scoring. The second half saw a brighter Brechin but once again their luck was out. A succession of goals was lost through the ball hitting the woodwork instead of going in. Four minutes from time the visitors got the goal that gave them the points.
