Football: Forfar Celtic, 4; Brechin Vics, 4.
After half an hour Moir put Celtic ahead, and just after Gillies made it two. Just before half-time Scott pulled one back for Vics and Barnes equalised from a free-kick. In the second half both teams again scored twice and a draw was a fair result.

Football: Brechin City, 2; Stenhousemuir, 1.

With two goals behind them, Brechin City just managed to hold on to their lead, in the closing stages of Saturday’s game at Glebe Park, to score their first League win since the beginning of February. Right to the end Muir were in with a chance. Though Brechin kept both points the fans felt that they had played better in the past few games and got nothing to show for it.
