Football: Turriff, 2; Brechin Victoria, 3.
Vics, who were playing their latest signing Jackie Ferrier, well deserved their victory in the Scottish Junior Cup, first round. Michie was back in the team after a fortnight off through injury. He put the visitors ahead in the first half with a fierce drive from 18 yards, and he and Booth netted after the interval. Turriff retaliated and managed to get a couple of goals through Chalmers and Fraser but could not break down Vics’ defence for the equaliser.
