Football: Brechin City, 1; Hamilton Accies, 0.
A single goal by Derek Hyslop after eight minutes was sufficient to give City the points in Tuesday’s home match versus Hamilton. Even the staunchest fans admitted they were lucky to beat the visitors who were full of fight and refused to give in

Football: Inverness Thistle last Thursday signed Brechin City outside left Ronnie Collie on a “gentleman’s agreement” with Glebe Park boss Ian Fleming. The First Division club have released Collie because the 18-year-old winger has moved to Inverness to work for year. John Macdonald from Thistle said: “Although he is now an Inverness Thistle player, our gentleman’s agreement is that he returns when Brechin want him.”
