Pre-war - but Still Going Strong
Lots of entertaining football was served up at Recreation Park. Peterhead, when a pre-war Aberdeen team defeated a pre-war Peterhead eleven by five goals to four. The match was in aid of Peterhead Cricket Club's ground imorovements scheme.

On the run of play the home side were worth a draw, but they were not so dangerous at close range as the visitors. Mills (4) and Armstrong scored for Aberdeen, while Sneddon (3) and J. Buchan (pen.) had Peterhead's goals.
