Golf: Brechin Golf Club are to abolish the 12-mile radius rule for county members. Instead this will only now apply to membership outside the counties of Angus and Kincardineshire but those inside this area will have full membership. The club now has 360 members.

Football: Brechin Vics, 1; Osborne, 2.
Two soft goals gave Osborne the points in a game which threatened to get out of hand towards the end. The visitors went ahead in the second minute. Reid dropped the ball and with the ‘keeper injured it was easy for Duthie to put in over the line. Beedie hooked the ball past Nicoll to equalise but Sharp restored Osborne’s lead. 
Bell of Vics and two Osborne players were booked.
