Football: Brechin City 1, East Stirling 0.
City’s defence took the honours against Est Stirlingshire at Glebe Park on Saturday and with Waddell pulling his weight behind, well supported by Sime, the visitors found it impossible to break through. Their finishing, moreover, was poor. City, with the strong wind behind them, were one up at half-time thanks to Mitchell.

Golf: Brechin High School cleared the first hurdle in their bid to win a golfing trip to Ireland when they topped the 1975 Aer Lingus school’s golf championship regional qualifying round at the Royal Aberdeen Course, Aberdeen, last Wednesday.
