    Practice match
Kick Off:    Murray, McIntosh, Travers       Edgar  
Attendance: 2,000
Venue: Pittodrie Stadium, Aberdeen
Fully 2000 spectators were present last night at Pittodrie Park, Aberdeen, and the second practice match, which was played in favorable weather. The league eleven was pitted against the A team. Mister J. Russel acted as referee, and the following teams lined up:-

League team: King; Colman, Hume; Wilson, Wyllie, Millar; Soye, McIntosh, Murray, travers, Lennie.
A Team: Greig; Hannah, Harper; Davidson, Watson, Robertson; Hay, Towns, McCann, Edgar, Macfarlane.

The play was interesting throughout, there being a good deal of meat and accurate passing on both sides. The reserves were quite equal to their more experienced opponents in the first half, and had fully more of the play, as King had to handle more frequently and his understudy. McCann was fouled inside the dreaded area, but from the resultant penalty taken by Hannah, King saved. Near half-time, Murray beat Greg, picking up a cross pass from Lennie. The custodian got the ball, but failed to hold it. It was from another pass of Lennie's minute or two afterwards that McIntosh made the score 2-0 in favour of the league team. The whites had a good deal of the pressing, but the shooting of the forwards was at times loose and erratic.

King and Gregg exchanged places in the second portion. The senior team had the best of matters, and played with more freedom than the reserve lot. Edgar, however, reduce the leeway against the A team, but nearing time travers scored a third goal for the first leaguers.

The proceeds of the match are to go to local charities, and amounted to close on 11. But choose the evenings practice game, in which the drawings taken were given in aid of the Infirmary funds, the amount realized was about 12.
