Bowls: Syd Ormerod, Brechin, well known in Scottish bowling circles and a former president of the Brechin Club, has been picked for the Scottish indoor bowling team to play in the home international tournament at Prestwick in March.

Football: Motherwell, 2; Brechin City, 0.
There was no repetition of Broomfield Park debacle at Motherwell on Sunday and City, once against at their best against a First Division team (and this one is well up the League), put up a very creditable show. To finish only two goals down proved that there is real potential at Glebe Park if it can only be developed. What a difference a little more initiative would have made.
