Football: Brechin City 3, East Fife 2.
Brechin City were responsible for one of the shock results of the day on Saturday, when they beat the League leaders, East Fife at Glebe Park by the odd goal in five. The win was no fluke. City adapted themselves more successfully to the greasy conditions and succeeded in getting a real grip on the game.

Football: Coupar Angus 1, Brechin Vic 0.
The teams were pretty evenly matching the first half of the Currie Cup second round match, and both lost many chances of scoring. In 65 minutes Coupar got the goal of the game when Lorimer netted from a rebound. Vics stepped up the pressure but to no avail.
