Football: Brechin High Under-15s 3, Arbroath Academy 2; Brechin High Under-13s 0, Arbroath Academy 4.
Both games were played under difficult conditions - a hard ground with slippery surface. The Under-15s looked set for a big score after an early Adamson goal but slack defensive play kept Arbroath in with a chance. R. Waiter and R Skelton Scored in the second half, with B Morris outstanding in defence. The Under-13s without captain Fitchet, a mumps victim, were unable to stem the attacks of the nimble Arbroath forwards.

Hockey: Saturday’s game against condor was postponed due to an unplayable pitch. This week Brechin entertain Aberdeen Academicals at Wards Park.
