Bob Ewart, Brechin, last month, for the second year in succession, won the Montrose and District Motor Club’s Ray Wilson Cup in the run for the vintage machines. He was riding a belt-driven 1921 Triumph.

The captain of Brechin Golf Club, Mr T. J. Stoddart got a hole in one at the 16th during the Taranty Trophy competition.

The 1963/64 Scottish football season starts on Saturday, with the league cup competition. Brechin City has no official fixture for Saturday as there are five clubs in their section and this week they are the free side. However, they have arranged a friendly at Glebe Park with a strong Junior select. Many will wonder what Brechin’s chances are this season.
