Local sports round-up

Brechin City Under-10s

In last week’s Brechin Advertiser, we had a picture of the Under-10s’ presentation evening that took place in December. The caption should have also stated that Dundee United Under-20s star Harry Souttar also presented the prizes alongside John Souttar and Ryan Gauld. The thanks from the club should have read as: “I would like to also thank Murdo, Michelle and all the people involved in making the evening such a great success.”

Curling competition winners

The winners of the Graham Arnot Curling competition 2014 held at Forfar Curling Centre over the past weekend were Ian Young, Murray Young (Skip), David Shepherd and Lorraine Grieve. The team beat George Christie’s rink. Forfar Curling Centre president Ron Caithness presented the Salver and prizes.

Football Ground book

Glebe Park, the home of Brechin City, is one of 42 football grounds in Scotland to feature in a new book written by Martin McNelis.

Martin, who visited every professional football ground in the country with his two sons, said: “A couple of people have written about similar tales but my inspiration was based on my eldest son collapsing and then being later diagnosed with diabetes. Just after this, a friend of ours died in a road crash in Cumbernauld and I thought I’m doing this before I get hit by a bus!”

His book, entitled ‘Got to do the 42’ and published by Empire, is a bit different. Martin explained: “It covers a bit about our experience, the club, ground and the match attended. The ground visit to Glebe Park was one of the best.”
