Football: Brechin Vics 1, Luncarty 2.
Mitchell beat three men to put Luncarty in the lead in the 25th minute, the visitors led by that goal at half-time. In the second half Watson equalised from a penalty kick, but Baird restored Luncarty’s lead.

Football: Stranraer 2, Brechin City 1.
Even the Stranraer fans gave Ian Gray, City’s new goalie, an ovation on Saturday. He brought off a series of saves - described as fantastic and “out of this world” - that earlier had made Stranraer despair of getting the vital goals. For long spells City were fighting a sturdy rearguard action and here Gray was outstanding. He even stopped a Simpson penalty late in the first half.
