Cricket;three counties cup tie, Brechin v Dundee Academicals - The weather relented to provide a warm, sunny evening for this game and Accies batted to the bowling of Wilson and Fergie Reid. Reid struck three quick blows and Accies were in trouble at 12 for three in six overs.

Brechin v Forthill X1; Another predicted win which was against the book. After Forthill’s poor showing the previous day at Broughty Ferry they, with the assistance of County players, made short work of the homesters. We can say, however, that Brechin’s batting is improving in steadiness.

Football; On SATURDAY Montrose Roselea play Alyth United in the final for the Brechin Rosebowl. This match, with a 3 p.m. kick-off will be played to a finish.
