Football: Brechin Boys U14s 9, Arbroath 2.
Against a weakened Arbroath SC Team the Boys went on a scoring spree. The way the Boys were moving the ball about the goals just had to come. They netted five in the first half.
The pattern of the second half was about the same as the first, but slackness in defence lost two goals. A good all round performance. Scorers - P. Carr (3), A. Thomson (3), N. West, P. Goodwin and S. Ross.

Football: Brechin City 3, Aridrie 0.
Airdrie, who triumphed over Aberdeen in their Skol Cup tie, were brought back to earth when City beat them 3-0 in the League at Glebe Park. Scorers were Stewart, Torrance and Hay.
