Brechin City F.C. was formed in 1906 from the merger of two local clubs, Brechin Hearts and Brechin Harp. The Forfarshire Football Association had decided that the city needed a senior side, feeling this would benefit football in Forfarshire generally. Brechin joined the Scottish Football League Third Division in 1923. The team has played most of its football since in the second tier of Scottish Football. Brechin won the Second Division title in 1982-83, 1989-90 and 2004-05, and the Third Division in 2001-02. The club finished as runners-up in the Scottish Challenge cup in 2002-03 and won the Qualifying cup in 1950-51. The team celebrated its centenary year in 2006 and made the second division play offs in the 2006-07 season. Unfortunately the celebration ended there, as the team lost 6-1 on aggregate to Airdrie. The Hedgemen, as the team is known, play at Glebe Park, Brechin, which has a capacity of 3,960. At the end of January 2008, Brechin were thrown out of the Scottish Cup after it was found that they had fielded two ineligible players. Brechin had beaten Hamilton Academicals 2-1 in a fourth round replay and Hamilton took the team's place in the next round.
