Orion 2 - 2 Dundee A
Kick Off:    Prophet, ? (pen)        
Attendance: 0
Venue: Cattofield, Aberdeen
At Cattofield on Saturday afternoon the Orion and Dundee A teams engaged in a friendly match before a fair turnout of spectators. The teams were:- Dundee A: A. Stewart; Jeffray, Taylor; A. Halkett, Gowans, Keillor; Atherton, Barron, Milne, J. Halkett. Orion: Ritchie; Willox, Brebner; Currie, Low, Campbell; Prophet, Fraser, Lawrie, Wilson, Low. Mr. Watt, Aberdeen, was referee.

The Orion at the outset forced the play, and Prophet, getting down, crossed to Lawrie, who passed to Fraser, and that player beat Stewart with a fine shot, but the referee declared the point offside. After a spell of end to end play the homesters once more got into close quarters, and Prophet scored.

During the second half the visitors showed up better, and put on two goals in quick succession. Just about a minute from time Orion equalised with a penalty.
