Golf: Alexander McLEan, Brechin Golf Club, won the 14-year-old and under section of the Craigie Hill Golf Club (Perth) Open on Saturday, June 8. He had a scratch score of 74.

Cricket: Brechin v Edinburgh Accies.
Following on an excellent display in the field, with good bowling from the attack, the Brechin batsmen gave a very indifferent performance. As in the past, with only a moderate score to pass and plenty of time, players were too anxious to get the runs by skying the ball or playing bad shots, instead of settling in and having a good look at the opposition bowling. Scores - Edinburgh Accies, 125 all out; Brechin, 114 all out.
