Football: Forfar Athletic 1, Brechin City 3.
After beating Forfar 4-1 at Glebe Park the previous week City had the satisfaction of achieving the double when they went to Station Park last Wednesday. Two ex-Forfar players played a big part in City’s success - Jim Young and John Sime. Young was a thorn in the flesh of pivot Hopcroft, especially in the second and gave the visitors their decisive goal six minutes from the end.

Football: Brechin Vics 2, Jeanfield Swifts 1.
Vics were first to settle and E. Munro scored with a hard shot. Swifts tried hard to get on level terms but the home defence was in top form. Near the interval Robbie added another goal for Vics, but Swifts pulled one back just on half time.
