Tour of Bohemia Moravia and Galicia

Pardubitz 2 - 4 Aberdeen
Kick Off:          Wyllie (Pen), Hume, Soye, Soye.  
Attendance: 0
Except for their failure at Prague in the opening match of the two are, the Aberdeen team of football players have so far had a most successful tour, and at this place today the team followed up a series of remarkable victories by a 4-2 win over the Pardubitz Club, achieved in spite of the fact that this was the visitors third match in as many days. They have more than a passing conception of the game in Pardubitz, and for their victory today the Scotsman had to play uncommonly hard, the experience of finding stiff opposition being not unwelcome after the easy passage is the side has had in the last series of matches. The game was rendered noteworthy from a playing point if you buy the fact that the first penalty kick of the tour fell to Aberdeen. During a hot Scots' attack one of the Pardubitz defenders infringed the rules, and his action enabled Wyllie to score. Hume was again on the mark, and had a goal, while Soye had the remaining two. Aberdeen are due to leave here on Sunday, but on the afternoon of that day they will play a return match with the city club, fifth and after the strenuous this which has marked the first encounter, there is every indication of the match being one of the most exciting of the tour. The hospitality of the natives continues to know no bounds, and all along the route the players have been feted and entertained on a lavish scale.
