Football: The 37 league clubs have been asked to send a representative to a meeting at the SFA in Glasgow to vote on the proposed three-league set up. A two-thirds majority is required to carry out the reconstruction proposals. The plan is for three leagues with 14, 12, and 12 clubs. Brechin. Forfar and Montrose would be in the Third Division.

Hockey: Brechin 2, HMS Condor 5.
It was anybody’s match until midway through the second half when the Navy centre forward sparkled with two great individual goals. The home forwards failed to convert the chances that came their way. The rear six didn’t help by giving away corners. Hammond and Reid netted for Brechin.
