Hockey: Morgan 3, Brechin 3.
Left-back Honeyman, at centre for the day, played a stormer and showed more enthusiasm than usual. Playing a chase-everything game he added some much needed weight, but also, and more important, finishing touches which have been obviously absent in recent weeks.

Football: Brechin YMCA won the Forfar and District Amateur league when they drew with Forfar Renton. This game was spoiled by a strong wind. The YM attacked from the start, but the forwards were really off form. Renton scored first in a breakaway. YM got on level terms 10 minutes later through Renton. Renton gradually took command, but the Brechin lads held out.
