Racing: after the disappointment of retiring in February’s Snowman Rally, Ian Milne of Timaru, Trinity, scored a strong fourth place in last Saturday’s valentine rally, second round of the Scotsman/ Gaelic Oil Championship. Milne’s escort finished behind the similar cars driven by Charles Samson and Donald Heggie from Fife and Jim Mcrae for Kirkmuirhill in Lankarshire.

Football@: Brechin City 3, Cowdenbeath 1.
There was no doubt about the better team at Glebe Park on Saturday. City, after an uncertain start, steadily got on top of the game an established a three goal lead before the visitors were able to pull one back. Young (2) and Weir were City’s scorers.
