A Team 2 - 2 B Team
    Practice match
Kick Off:    Millar, Campbell up       McIntosh, Main  
Attendance: 8,000
Venue: Pittodrie Stadium, Aberdeen
Fully 8000 spectators assembled at Pittodrie last night to witness the first of two trial matches taken part in by the Aberdeen football team has recently constituted. The sides were so arranged that the prospective defense of the League team opposed the perspective forward line of that combination. As a trial, the game, which resulted in a two goal draw, was eminently successful, and the spectators for the most part were delighted with the exhibition. The A side, which included the first team defense, were the superior combination in the first half, and goals scored by Millar and Campbell enabled them to lead at the interval by 2 goals to 1, the B team's point being scored by McIntosh. Play was extremely interesting in the second half, when Main equalised after King had been drawn from his goal. The feature of the game was a magnificent play of the league team defence, and in particular that of Colman, who time after time justly earned the plaudits of the spectators. The teams were:-

He team: King; Colman, Hume; Davidson, Wyllie, Millar; Dickson, J Walker (Seaforth Highlanders), Campbell (Aberdeen Richmond), W. Wilson (Elgin City), Neilson.
B team: Greig; Hannah, J. S. Paterson (Buckie), Wilson, Watson, Low; Soye, McIntosh, Main, Wood, Lennie.

A collection was taken inside the grounds on behalf of local charities, and the amount subscribed was 15.
