Charity Cup 
Orion 11 - 0 Peterhead
Kick Off:           
Attendance: 0
Venue: Wellington Bridge Grounds, Aberdeen
Players and spectators in the north of Scotland were on Saturday favoured with ideal football weather. The air was clear, cold, and bracing, the sun shone brightly, and there was a light westerly breeze, which, however, did not interfere with play. Peterhead and Orion met at Wellington Grounds before a large attendance of spectators in the second round of the competition for the Aberdeenshire Charity Cup. From start to finish the visitors were hopelessly outplayed, and the local men added goal after goal at pleasure, until, when the whistle sounded, the scores stood: Orion 11, Peterhead 0.
