Football: Motherwell 2, Brechin City 0
Brechin’s unbeaten away record came to amend at Motherwell on Saturday. 
“We made a lot of basic mistakes,” was Brechin manager Fleming’s summing-up. 
Instead of going into the attack right away, the visitors made defensive errors which enabled Motherwell to go two up before half-time and despite a stronger effort in the second half they never caught up.

gOLf: winning team at the Edzell pro-am golf tournament with a net 55 were Ron Mackie and his son Kevin, of Brechin, Lanark professional Andrew Brooks and Dundee photographer Ron Gazzard.
