Football: Brechin City have signed their former right winger Willie Wyles from East Fife. Jacky Thoms, another ex-player, may be signed from Raith Rovers for Saturday’s game. Doull, Alyth United, and Pollock, Lochgelly Albert, have also been signed in a bid to strengthen the forward line.

Hockey: Brechin, 11; Dundee YMCA, 0.
Shooting practice for the Brechin forwards and how they needed it. If the score had been doubled, as it should have been, it would have been no injustice to Brechin. Right from the whistle they demoralised a weak opposition. A good results for the homesters, but what poor, poor opposition. Scorers were:- Jolly (4), J. Hammond (3), G. Irvine (2), Honeyman and Christison.
