Football: Brechin Vics 4, Forfar E.E. 2.
Vics were a goal up in two minutes in this Scottish Junior Cup first round replay. Hill’s shot from 20 yards gave Seaton no chance. Bruce equalised from the wing, but from the kick-off Vics attacked and from a Sandeman cross Cawthorne headed a second goal. Beedie crashed in a third and Sandeman made it four. Melville scored a second for East End in the last minute.

Hockey: Brechin 2, Murray Royal 2.
With both teams only able to field nine men, this friendly was a fast and open affair. Reid put Brechin ahead with a good goal from the edge of the circle, but Perth equalised. Jolly scored in the second half, and Murray levelled.
