The Aberdeen 4 - 0 Morrison League Select
Kick Off:           
Attendance: 0
Venue: Chanonry, Aberdeen
Match not reported in the Aberdeen Journal
The juniors had a strong team picked to play the Whites, who were also strongly represented. Play was very equal in the first half, and the Aberdeen had the only goal scored. With the wind in their favour, it was thought the Aberdeen had an easy win, but it was only a quarter of an hour from time when they scored their second goal. They quickly added other two, and the game ended as above. The League played a very good game, and some of their players are well worth a place in a first eleven.
