Football: Forfar 2, Brechin City 4.
A ding-dong derby with the teams pretty well matched - Brechin may have had the edge in the second half - resulting in extra time having to be played in this first round Forfarshire Cup clash at Station Park. It was only in extra time that City really go on top of the Loons. Said manager Charlie Dunn: “We never got going until extra time but then we won well.”

Football: North End 1, Brechin Vics 1.
North End missed many chances in the first half and were lucky to be on level terms at the interval. Soutar put Vics ahead. Just on time North End were awarded a penalty. Robb’s shot was brilliantly saved by Miller, but he netted the rebound.
