This was a benefit match for Innes, the Keith back. The evening match was played in a competitive spirit with Aberdeen offering fine positional play whilst the Keith Select were less polished but more vigorous. Keith went into the lead after five minutes when Logie steered the ball home, but Aberdeen pulled it back when Cameron hammered in a free kick. A couple of minutes on and Yorston put the Dons in front. At this stage Newlands had to be helped off the park with a concussion and Mitchell took his place. Before half-time Keith equalised when Cruickshank hoisted the ball over Morrison's head. In the second half, Aberdeen dominated proceedings but Keith also had their chances, but the game ended honours even.
