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.

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.
