Football: After a special meeting on Monday night, Mr David Will, chairman of Brechin City FC, announced that they were terminating the contract of Ken Dick immediately. They were sorry to lose him - he had been unfortunate not getting the breaks on the playing side - but the morale of the team was so low that they had to take drastic action. No decision was being taken meantime on the appointment of a new manger. There was absolutely no question of City packing up.

Football: Lochee United, 4; Brechin Vics,1.
The defences held out in the first half, both ‘keepers bringing off a succession of saves. In the second half, however, United scored four times and Stott netted for Vics from the penalty spot.
