Football: St Mirren, 3; Brechin City, 0.
The man of the match was on the homeside, McKean of Paisley scoring all three goals of the game from the penalty spot. City tried hard but found St. Mirren too good for them. The score against them would have ben higher had St. Mirren not lost so many opportunities.

Football: Dennis Gillespie, who ‘retired’ in October, but returned when City were in difficulties, has been persuaded by manager Charlie Dunn to continue.

Football: Broughty Athletic, 1; Brechin Vics, 0.
Half-time came with no scoring, both sets of forwards failing at the 18-yard box. Robertson smashed home from a Robb free-kick to secure the win.
