Football: A very promising display was given by David Kay, the Brechin inside left, for the Scottish Amateur Select team who beat the Scottish Junior Select at Easter Road. David, who is 17, is an apprentice fitter with Messrs. Duke and Lowson Ltd. Provisionally signed for St Johnstone, he learned his football with Brechin United.

Football: Clyde, 5; Brechin City, 0.
City could not blame their ‘keeper for this further substantial increase in the goals against column, for Mike McVittie again put up a great show, which enabled City, though goalless, to hold their own pretty well until halftime. After Clyde’s third counter two minutes after the resumption, however, neither Mike nor anyone else could turn the tide.
