1927 tour of south africa

Not being geologists, the Heritage Trust are not entirely sure what this little beauty is made of - except for the inkwell and engraved plate which are gold. The memento was presented to the Club during their ground-breaking tour of South Africa in the summer of 1927 when they played a total of fourteen matches against various local opposition. The paperweight was presented by the Caledonian Societies of East Rand on the 4th of July ? the day that the Dons played a Frontier XI at East London, and lost 3-2 with Benny Yorston scoring both of our goals. The tour was a ground breaker not only for Aberdeen, but for Scottish football, as the Dons became the first Scottish Club to visit there.

For the record:
Won 8 Drawn 3 Lost 3 Scored 39 Condeded 17

Fuller details of the games can be found on this website under the Fixtures details for season 1927-1928.
