These elevens met at Victoria Bridge grounds in A friendly fixture. The United were without four of their first eleven, for whom second eleven players were substituted. The first period was stoutly contested, the United having slightly the best of the game. The fine exhibition given by Forsyth and Ritchie (of the United) and Law (of the Cowdenbeath) was the principal feature of the first 45 minutes' play. At half-time the ground team were leading by one goal to nil. The United were by far the better eleven in the second half, and added other four goals to their total. Result United, 6; Cowdenbeath, 1.
