Football: Jackie Thoms, City’s lively inside right re-signed for his old club, Stirling Albion, last week. They were impressed by Thoms’ display against them the previous week. They suggested a player exchange to City who, however, held out for a transfer fee.

Football: Brechin Vics 4, Kirrie Thistle 1.
Vics took the lead in the second minute. McCullloch failed to hold a drive by Hill and Beedie took full advantage. Five minutes after half-time Beedie increased Vics’ lead when he walked the ball round the ‘keeper. Two minutes later Brown pulled a goal back for Thistle. Beedie completed his hat-trick by heading home a Cawthrone cross and few minutes before time the centre made it four.
