Football: Queen’s Park 3, Brechin City 0.
Queen’s Park may be just above Brechin city in the league but the visitors found themselves outclassed at Lesser Hampden on Saturday by the speedy, well drilled Amateurs. Queen’s were an object lesson to City in the way they put on the goals. Too often promising leading up work by the visitors was lost in poor finishing. After their improved display in recent games the frequent fecklessness of the City team was a great disappointment to manager Dunn.

Golf: Norman Christie, Brechin, a member of Edzell Golf Club, holed his tee shot at the 156-yard sixth hole at Edzell. Mr Christie was accompanied by his son, Paul, and Mr John Gilmartin.
