Kick Off:           
Attendance: 0
Venue: Chanonry, Aberdeen
The last Northern League match of the season came off at Chanonry on Saturday afternoon, when Forfar Athletic and Aberdeen played their undecided Northern League tie. The game for the most part was practically in favour of the visitors, although Aberdeen on crossing over were leading by two goals to one. In the second period, however, the Athletic, having the advantage of the sun and wind, scored other 4 goals, and the game ended: Forfar Athletic, 5; Aberdeen, 2. As the result of the match, Forfar Athletic, with 21 points, are champions of the league, while Arbroath and Aberdeen come next with 20 and 14 respectively.
