Football: Forfar Athletic, 3; Brechin City, 3. 
Brechin City took a strong contingent of supporters with them to Forfar on Saturday for their last league cup match against Forfar Athletic. Although there was nothing at stake in this game, both teams gave an entertaining show. 
Brechin again showed they were fighters. After trailing 2-0 at the interval they turned the tables to lead 3-2 for along spell in the second half. 
In the closing minutes, however, Forfar equalised from a free kick. A draw was a fair result.

Football: Sandy McNiven, Brechin’s strong left half, was transferred to Raith Rovers on Monday night for a fee believed to be around £750.
