North Eastern League 
Leith Athletic 0 - 2 Aberdeen
Kick Off:          Dyer 23, Pattillo 68.  
Attendance: 300
Despite Leith's honest endeavour they were on able hold confident Aberdeen, whose forwards delighted.

George Robinson (Charlton Athletic), who has been assisting Sunderland regularly, was prominent.
Steele, too, was a big noise, and Pattillo kept a good grip the line. Lyon, in his last game tor the Dons, was steady; and Cooper and Graham were more than a match for the home raiders. Leith persisted playing too closely, and shot all too seldom.
Yet, in fairness, it might be said that Aberdeen also had faults in front of goal. There seems to be something in the atmosphere at Gymnasium these days, so is the sides poor finishing.
