Boxing: The Brechin ABAC again put on a very successful Youth Show, with 16 fights during the evening - enough for two shows and still a few of their own boys not able to box because of difficulties in matching them. The Brechin boys showed that they will soon be able to box with the best in the Midland District and by next season should be standing up to any Club. The club was very fortunate to have Frank Gilfeather, Midland Champion and Scottish internationalist, appear in the show.

Hockey: Queen’s College 3, Brechin 0.
Brechin could only raise 10 men for this league game at Downfield. In the first half Queen’s pressed continuously and deservedly scored three goals before half-time.
