Football: Brechin City 0, East Fife 6.
Brechin City Supporters are bewildered. Last Wednesday they saw their team through to the second round of the Scottish Cup with an easy 5-1 win over Stirling Albion in the replay at Glebe Park. But on Saturday City, again playing at home, went down 6-0 and were completely outplayed by East Fife in a league game.

Hockey: Brechin 2, Aberdeen 2.
Brechin should have won this game hands down and have only themselves to blame. Playing on a concrete hard ground the players found it hard to adjust themselves. Brechin started well, but a defensive error handed Aberdeen a draw. Anderson and Jolly were the scorers for Brechin.
