Football: Brechin City took revenge for their League Cup defeat when they beat Forfar Athletic 3-2 at Station Park on Saturday, The main difference in the teams was in the front where the Brechin forwards were outstanding and caused much trouble to the Forfar defence.

Football: Berwick Rangers 5, Brechin City 1.
City’s long journey brought nothing but disappointment. They were unlucky to be up against a powerful Berwick team who in the first half were content to establish their superiority without unduly exerting themselves, but in the second half they completely overran their visitors. But for McVittie in goals, Berwick could have reached double figures. Forsyth at centre-half was the only other City player to impress.
