Northern League 
Fair City Athletic 3 - 0 Orion
Kick Off:           
Attendance: 0
Venue: Balhousie, Perth
With a strong combination, including Moultrie of the Dunfermline, the Orion encountered the Fair City Athletic on Balhousie Park, Perth, in a Northern League fixture. The Athletic were considerably strengthened by the inclusion of several players from other teams. Throughout the first half the Orion had most of the play, but their shooting was miserable. Time and again they had creditable runs, but these were rendered futile by reckless kicking. On the other hand, when the Athletic got near the Orion's goalmouth, they showed fine combination, and at half time they were leading by two goals to nil. In the second period the Fair City were the better team. At the call of time the scores stood Fair City Athletic 3, Orion 0.
