Victoria United 7 - 0 Dundee A
Kick Off:  3:30 PM   Ritchie, Clark, Clark, Clark, McFarlane, Clark, Clark        
Attendance: 2,000
Venue: Victoria Bridge, Aberdeen
These teams met in a friendly at Victoria Bridge Grounds before an attendance of over 2000 spectators. Losing the toss, the Vics kicked off against a strong sun, and at once made for the Dundee's territory. By and by Ritchie sent in a shot which landed the leather in the net, but an appeal for offside was sustained. A few minutes afterwards Ritchie again headed the leather through, and Clark in a twinkling repeated the operation. The Vics continued to press their opponents, and shortly before half-time Clark added another point.

On resuming, Clark notched the fourth point for the Vics. The homesters kept up the aggressive work, and McFarlane put on the fifth point shortly afterwards. The Vics continued to have matters pretty much their own way, and before time was called Clark had notched other two points, and the game ended: Victoria United, 7; Dundee, 0.
