Darts: Doug Fyfe, Bolag, and Dave Candy, City Club, won the Moir Cup in the Brechin and District darts league doubles competition. In the final played at the US base at Edzell, they beat Dave Menmuir and Arthur Murray of the West End. There was an entry of 86 pairs for the tournament.

Football: Edzell Amateur FC have been voted out of the Fettercairn and District League after two seasons in favour of Brechin United, a new team in the league.

Football: Raith Rovers, 1; Brechin City, 1.
The point which Brechin City brought back from Kirkcaldy was a real red-letter one - it lifted the team a rung from the foot of the table where they have bene bogged down since the beginning of the season.
