Aberdeenshire Cup 
The Aberdeen 5 - 0 Culter
Kick Off:           
Attendance: 0
Venue: Chanonry, Aberdeen
Plucky Stand by Culter.
These teams met at Chanonry in the semi-final round of the Aberdeenshire Cup ties before a small turnout of spectators. Mr R. Turner, Aberdeen, officiated as referee. Both elevens were well represented. At half-time the Aberdeen were leading by 4 goals to nil. Play during the second portion of the game was of a more equal nature, but notwithstanding the strong opposition offered by the strangers, Aberdeen secured another goal.

The lads from Culter made a good stand against Aberdeen, and were in no way disgraced in being defeated by 5 goals to nil. True, with such a strong breeze behind them, they might have scored in the first half, but when we take into account the fact that Aberdeen only got through once and Orion failed altogether in teeth of the wind, the villagers did fairly well. The Whites and Blues will now fight for premier honours. May the fittest get home first.
