Football: Brechin City 1, Forfar Athletic 1.
Brechin City and Forfar Athletic were the two Angus team which squatted at the foot of the 2nd Division last season. They still seemed evenly matched in their League Cup game at Glebe Park on Saturday. Each scored a goal in the first half and that was that.

Football: ASC arbroath 3, Brechin Vics 4.
ASC attacked at the start, but Vics settled down and pressed the home club. In a break away D. Munro scored for the ASC, Vics tried hard to equalise but could not find the net and were still one down at half-time. Vics later scored from the spot, before netting twice again. Munro scored twice for ASC, but Vics netted a winner.
