Football: Brechin City must thank ‘keeper Mike McVittie for only conceding one goal against the promotion seeking E. S. Clydebank at Glebe Park on Saturday. But, alas, the goal was enough to give the visitors both points. A shot from Kemp that gave Mike no chance at all, but the ball should have been cleared up field long before Kemp got near it.

Football: Dundee 6, Brechin City 1.
Forfarshire cup, first round tie at Dens Park.
City played gamely, especially in the first half, but could not last the pace against the First Leaguers, who were playing for two-thirds of the game with only 10 men. McVittie once again kept Brechin from being completely overwhelmed.
