Football: Brechin Victoria 1, Dundee Violet 0.
Vics hosted Violet at home in the first round of the Drybrough Cup. They kicked off and made for the visitors goal, Munro missing by inches. Violet retaliated but Millar saved. Play swung from goal to goal. In a Vics’ attack Robbie hit the post and Noble scored with the rebound. 
In the second half the visitors did most of the attacking, but failed to pierce the Vics defence.

Bowls: Six rinks turned out for the last game of the season at Brechin Bowling Club. The Vice-president’s rinks beat those of the President by 139-111. 
The winning rink was skipped by S. Ormerod and included Mrs Manson, G. McIntosh and E. French.
