Football: Brechin F.P.s remain in the First Division of the Montrose and District Welfare League by winning their play-offs against North End and Marine, both played at Balwyllo. Brechin defeated North end by three goals to one and then secured a two nil victory over Marine.

Football: St Madoes, 1; Brechin Boys Under-15s, 0.
The first defeat in 10 games, only they had the chances to win, but find the net, they could not. We went to St Madoes for this game, what a difference it makes to play on a good pitch. The 12-hour marathon on Saturday had taken its toll, a few of the Boys were not putting enough into their game, no names mentioned, but no disgrace to lose to the Saints on this form.
