Attendance: 0
Venue: Kynoch Park, Keith
Aberdeen visited Keith last night and gave an exhibition game, the proceeds being on behalf Lord Provost Lewis' Fund. There was a good turn-out of spectators, and the game was thoroughly enjoyed. Aberdeen had early the measure of the home eleven, and indulged in exhibition play throughout, and at half-time were leading by 4 goals to nil, two falling to Macfarlane and one each to Yorston and McHale. In the second half, with the wind advantage, the homesters showed up somewhat better, but were unable to penetrate the Aberdeen defence. Aberdeen could have scored on several occasions, but made no effort to finish.

At the close the game, on the call of Mr George Hume, president Keith F.C., the Aberdeen players and directors were thanked for their courtesy in sending up a team to play Keith on behalf of the fund. Mr Craigmyle was thanked on the call Mr George Taylor, vice-president. The gate amounted to about 30.
