Football: Brechin City 4, Forfar Athletic 1.
Brechin were three goals up in half an hour. Happily there was no repeat of the debacle against Stenhousemuir the previous week, although Forfar scored just on half-time and threatened again on the resumption. Mitchell put City ahead before Wilson added a brace. Kyles pulled one back for Forfar but City’s win was assured with a goal netted by Young.

Football: Osborne 6, Brechin Victoria 1.
Vics’ troubles began when several players failed to turn up. Osborne opened the scoring and had three more goals before the interval. Osborne added two more in the second half before Munro scored a consolation goal for vics.
