Angling: At the annual dinner and dance of Brechin Angling Club in the Glenesk Hotel, a statuette of a fisherman was presented to the club champion, Mr William Clark, jun., who had 26 points. He has won the Mackenzie and Duncan championship six years in a row. This year he also won the Loch Saugh Rosebowl and the Saturday Cup.

Football: Stirling Albion, 5; Brechin City, 0.
A hat-trick by Billy Steele helped Stirling Albion to swamp City at Annfield on Saturday. Brechin had a chance to pull the game round after half time when the homesters with a two goal lead appeared to have lost their earlier zip but an opportunist goal by McPhee put Stirling in the ascendant again.
