Squash: On the first weekend in December a team from Brechin high School visited Edinburgh and played matches against Fettes College and Firrhill Secondary School. Brechin lost both matches but as the Edinburgh boys ere older and had more experience of match play this was to be expected. The scores were Brechin High 1, Fettes College 4 and Brechin High 2, Firrhill Secondary 4.

Football: Ross County 2, Brechin City 0.
In the second round of the Scottish Cup at Dingwall on Saturday, Brechin City lost to Ross County, the Highland League side, in conditions they won’t forget in a hurry. After heavy snow, the referee gave the go ahead for the game but the state of the park was deplorable.
