Football: East Stirlingshire 1, Brechin City 2.
At Firs Park on Saturday an unusually confident City surprised the home team - and possibly themselves - by scoring a 2-1 win over East Stirlingshire (who have scored more than twice as many points in the League this season). And this in spite of losing Wilson (who had scored their first goal) with a broken jaw after half an hour.

Squash: The Brechin men’s team narrowly beat Forthill at Kintrockat on Tuesday, November 12. The sores were as follows (Brechin players first):
J. Osborne beat R. Johnston 3-2; R. Evans beat I. Noble 3-2; D. Reid beat D. Maxwell 3-2; I. Murray lost to E. Merry 2-3; W. Weir lost to W. Pate 0-3.
