Badminton: IN an inter league match played at Montrose Leisure Centre, Strathmore Badminton League defeated Brechin and District League by 15 games to 11. The only section which the Brechin team won was the Mixed Doubles ‘B’ in which they defeated Strathmore by five games to one.

Football: Falkirk 3, Brechin City 0.
It was wet and miserable weather on Saturday afternoon and the result of City’s match against Falkirk, at Falkirk, was equally dreich for the visitors who have only won one match in six outings. They managed to hold Falkirk to a 0-0 draw in the first half, but went on to win ‘soccer suicide’ by giving away three goals. At fault were Neilson, Fleming and Stewart.
