Hockey: Aberdeen Academy, 1; Brechin, 0.
Brechin’s defence emerged from this game with flying colours. This was the best game since began the long, sorry series of defeats.
Brechin played like veterans although half the team are still in their first season of hockey. What spirit and enthusiasm these youngsters showed and just a little steadiness is now required.

Football: Clackmannnan, 4; Matrix, 1.
Matrix travelled to meet Clackmannan and after holding them to a 1-1 draw at the interval, the home side gradually got on top and scored three more goals without reply.
