City fight back: Brechin City 2, Queen’s Park 1. Manager Dunn had not lost faith in the team which had gone down to Raith Rovers 5-2 the previous week, but he had to wait until the last half-hour before they really got going. About 350 saw the game and Mr R.B. Valentine, Dundee, officiated. Team: Beatson; Gibson, Brown; Weir, Sime, Gillespie; Sutherland, McNicoll, Young, Coutts, Mitchell. Subs. - Millar, Morton.

Jim sets pace: Jim Watt, Brechin, a member of Edzell Golf Club, playing off a handicap of three, has set a target for other competitors in the club’s winter eclectic competition. At the weekend at the 507-yard 18th Jim holed out for an eagle three. The previous weekend he went even better with an albatross at the par five ninth, 478 yards.
