Football: east Stirling, 1; Brechin City, 2.
Brechin City followed up their 2-1 defeat of Stenhousemuir at Glebe Park with a convincing win over East Stirlingshire at Falkirk on Saturday. 
The homesters started off boldly but their confidence was sapped by City’s surprising goal in 24 minutes and then by an own goal early in the second half. 
City, too apt to fade out in the second half, maintained their form once they really got going All the team showed up well.

Football: Brechin have signed John Weir (19) of Fairfield Juveniles but will not call him up until next season. City will have tough opposition in Stirling Albion at Glebe Park on Saturday.
