Football: Brechin City 1, Hearts of Midlothian 1.
City were able to keep their Premier League visitors so well in hand that Hearts were only able to net the goal which earned them replay at Edinburgh 15 minutes from the end.

Football: Brechin Thistle 3, Friockheim 4.
This training game was used by Thistle to give their younger players a game and they all played their hearts out with some good, entertaining football. Despite this Thistle found themselves 3-0 down, unfortunately missing a penalty just before half-time. In the second half, they piled on this pressure and it paid off with Barry Stewart scoring twice and Mark Ewen netting a third.
