Fishing: the brechin Angling Club has added another 200 rainbow trout to Loch Saugh, of which they have a lease. They put in 200 trout last season. To conserve the rainbow trout it was agreed at a recent meeting that only fly fishing be permitted and not more than two rainbow trout in each basket. Non-members will be barred from Sunday fishing.

Cricket: FORTHILL V BRECHIN. 
This was an outstanding victory Brechin had over the Forthill XI. The Brechin bowlers took the command from the start pinning the batsmen down on a very good wicket but rather slow. Fergie Reid and Bill Duthie opened and it was good to see Duthie having a good spell and claiming two wickets. Fergie Reid gave his usual high performance.
