Football: Kirrie Thistle 1, Brechin Vics 1.
The teams were well-matched in this Midlands League game. Thistle lost a lot of chances before A. Taylor found the net from a G. Taylor corner. After the interval Vics asserted themselves more successfully and in 60 minutes Munro scored in a defensive mix-up. Thistle failed to beat the Vics’ defence for a second goal.

Football: Brechin City 0, Falkirk 3.
City gave the Bairns a harder game than the score indicates, but alas, no marksman to nip in and score from some of the many chances which went begging. Falkirk also failed to find the net until the last half hour when the homesters were tiring on the heavy pitch.
