Football: Arbroath Vics 1, Brechin Vics 0.
Exchanges were even in the first half with no marksman on either side to convert chances. In the second half, however, a mix-up in the Brechin goal-mouth allowed Stott to slip home a goal - the homesters had the points they needed to keep them in second position in the League.

Football: Clydebank 3, Brechin City 1.
City were able to hold Clydebank to a goalless draw in the first half; but in the second half they rattled in two goals. City, thanks to a penalty, were to pull one back but the final sensation of the game was left until the last minute when McCallan made sure for the Bankies.
