Old Photograph Football Club Brechin Scotland

Old photograph of the Football Club in Brechin in Angus, Scotland. The club was founded in 1906 by players and officials from two comparatively successful local junior sides, Brechin Harp and Brechin Hearts. A deputation from the Forfarshire Football Association had met with representatives of the local game at the Temperance Hall in City Road and managed to persuade them that Brechin would benefit from having a single senior club. Although Brechin Harp folded with the establishment of the senior side, Brechin Hearts continued as a viable and successful Junior side until the years of the Great War. The club won its first important local honour, the Forfarshire Cup, in the 1909–10 season with a side that featured nine players from the town.
