Athletics: Brechin Amateur Athletic Club, in its new premises at the Temperance Hall, reports an enthusiastic membership in every section. The young boxers training there nights and weekends are hoping to appear in youth shows during the winter. Training with them is Ian Crawford, the Scottish police heavy-weight, and internationalist.

Football: East Fife 1, Brechin City 0.
City had to thank ‘keeper McVittie and the wild shooting of the homesters that there was not a bigger score against them at Methil on Saturday. East Fife owed their points to a penalty goal in the second half. With only two minutes to go City looked good for a point but they were too late.
