Victoria United 4 - 0 Polton Vale
Kick Off:           
Attendance: 0
Venue: Victoria Bridge, Aberdeen
From the fact that the Polton Vale had defeated the United at Poltcon in the third round of the qualifying cup ties, more than ordinary interest centred in the return fixture, which was a friendly one, and was played on the grounds of the United at Torry. Throughout, the exhibition was disappointing, neither team coming up to expectation. The United were minus five of their usual players, for whom second eleven members were substituted. At half-time the ground team led by one goal, and at the close the scores stood - United 4, Polton Vale 0.
