Hockey: Brechin 1, Grove 8.
As expected, Brechin were no match for the visitors but put up quite a good show. The Stark Brothers, in the Grove front line, were difficult to control and both scored. The home defence was stretched but some of the goals were due to opportunism and no blame can rest upon the goalkeeper.

Up in the Brechin forward line, the odd thrust was dangerous, but there was a lack of steady pressure and only one goal was scored, by Irvine.
This week the Ward Parkers travel to Dundee to meet Lawside in a league match. Team to leave the square at 1 p.m. is - Allison, Hammond, Honeyman, Barton Illingworth, Mitchell, Ballantine, Fullerton, Jolly, Reid and Irvine. Reserves Milne and Patterson.
