Football: At the Scottish League annual meeting on Monday the draw for the league cup was made. Brechin City will play in section nine and their opponents will be Montrose, Stenhousemuir, Forfar Athletic and Berwick Rangers.

Football: Brechin Vics had to field a makeshift team against Brechin Matrix for their semi-final replay in the Brechin Rosebowl. The team included old-stagers Fenton and Alex. Robertson had hard luck for Matrix when his shot splashed in a goalmouth pool to be cleared for a corner. But after 25 minutes Low headed home from his cross. Ritchie equalised against the run of play 12 after the restart, but Carnegie took a pass from Douglas to put Matrix ahead again, and Robertson scored a third.
