Football: Dunbar United 1, Brechin Vics 1.
This Scottish Cup first round match was played at Dunbar in good weather. Vics attacked but the home team cleared their lines. They took the lead in the first half through Munro. They continued to attack but they struck the bar three times and upright once. Dunbar’s centre got the ball and netted before the end of the half. In the second half, both teams strove hard to take the lead, but the game ended with a draw.

Football: Cowdenbeath 1, Brechin City 2.
For the first time in months manager Dunn had a full strength pool of players to draw on and as a result City, after a hesitant start, were able to chalk up a welcome win.
