Victoria United 2 - 2 East End, Aberdeen
Kick Off:    Knowles, Boyers       McIntosh, McIntosh  
Attendance: 0
Venue: Central Park, Aberdeen
Like the Orion, having no League fixture on, the Victoria United engaged in a friendly match with the East End team on Saturday afternoon at Central Park, Kittybrewster, before a meagre attendance of spectators. The United, who were considerably under strength, kicked off towards the east goal. After a few minutes of midfield play, Knowles sent in a long shot which almost took effect. The East End now commenced to show up well, and the United were frequently called upon to defend. From a corner, McIntosh opened the scoring for the East End. The game continued to be fairly evenly contested, but the shooting of the United was at times very erratic.

On resuming, the United displayed a decided improvement in their play, and were often in the East End quarters. Knowles at last succeeded in equalising, from a corner. The East End, however, replied almost immediately with another goal by McIntosh. A few minutes layer Boyers equalised for the United.
