From the sports’ archives: 50 years ago

Football: Arbroath 2, Brechin City 1.
Arbroath scraped both points but had not impressed even their own fans in this local derby at Gayfield on Saturday. So dull was their play that a section of the crowd started slow clapping. If the visitors did not shine, they did at least put everything they had in the game and were worth a draw anyway.

Football: Saturday is Matrix’s big day when they entertain Kilsyth Rangers at Matrix Park in the fifth round of the Scottish Junior Cup. This is the first time Matrix have gone so far in the Cup. A few seasons ago they were beaten by Kilsyth away and the fans will look to see them turning the tables on Saturday.
