Tour of Bohemia Moravia and Galicia 
Pardubitz 1 - 4 Aberdeen
Kick Off:          Main, Hume, Main, Hume.  
Attendance: 0
The concluding match of a most successful and enjoyable tour was played here today, when in the return game the Aberdeen football team defeated Pardubitz by 4 goals to 1. The pleasure of the three days' a stay of the team in the salubrious surroundings of Pardubitz has only been equalled by the hospitality of the Slavia club during the club's sojourn at Prague, the first place at which the team played. Since the strenuous contest of Thursday, when the visitors triumphed, the excitement has been gradually working up in view of today's return match, and when the teams appeared one of the biggest crowds of the tour had assembled. The weather conditions were ideal, and the heat was not so great as to affect the Britishers in their play. As on Thursday, there was a great amount of enthusiasm, and Aberdeen and served up one of their best exhibitions of the two are. Pardubitz, while they had the mortification of having their own defence Pierce four times, had consolation of beating King once. Their point gave them great encouragement, and although they played with determination, the Aberdeen defence were easily masters of the situation.
Hume, who has been the most prolific goal scorer of the tour, was again in evidence in that role, and with Maine he shared the four goals for the visitors. It was well known in Pardubitz that this was the last match of the Scotsmen's tour, and at the close the players got a great ovation from the assembled thousands.

The team that leaves for Prague on the homeward journey tonight, and will be in Dresden tomorrow. On Tuesday they will cross by Hook of Holland to Harwich, afterwards proceeding to London, finally reaching Aberdeen at 10:15 on Wednesday night.


Altogether the club has played eight matches, of which seven have been won and one lost. The team scored 43 goals against 10 by their opponents.
