Cricket: Brechin, 54;Lochee 98

This game playED under nearly summer conditions took place at Guthrie Park on Sunday, Rain cancelled the first Union game at Mannofield on Saturday and the home side are still without a victory. Even with Stuart Wilson back to the team the home bowling, with few exceptions, lacked determination.

Football: Berwick Rangers, 2; Brechin City,2.

The previous week City took a point from Hamilton in the closing minutes of the game. This week, alas, at Shielfield Park they had to concede a point to Berwick Rangers with the last kick of the match. This was most galling as in the early stages, paticularly, City had been right on top and all the way through Berwick’s effots were feeble.
