Football: Brechin City 3, Forfar Athletic, 0.
Forfar Athletic were very poor opposition for City at Glebe Park and Brechin could have added to their total had they not slackened off in the second half. 
After failing with two good tries Brett finally put City in the lead in the 18th minute and 10 minutes later Hunter made it two. 
Hunter completed the scoring in the 55th minute with a well taken header from a cross by Junior.

Hockey: The trial match produced some fine hockey. 
Four new players turned out and Brechin are playing one of these, Dick Clegg, from Montrose, at centre forward in the opening game against HMS Condor on Saturday at Wards Park.
