Arbroath Swamp Aberdeen A
Arbroath's continued their victorious career when they met Aberdeen A at key field in the Northern League.
The homesters monopolised play almost from start to finish, and before the close had piled on six goals against one of the Wasps. After the visitors secured their first goal 15 minutes from the start they never looked like scoring and other.the Arbroath, on the other hand, continually swarmed round Greig. Archibald, the Aberdeen inside right, worked like a Trojan to get his men away, but he received little support. Arbroath's 4-1 lead at the interval settled the result. Although combining well at times, the visiting forwards founded beyond them to get within reach of Crumley.
Of the six goals scored, J. Heron and Milne had each two, while G. Brown and Dorward had one each. Arbroath's again played up to their recent invincible form. Bisset was a little shaky at the start, but soon recovered, and Dinnie up seemed slightly off form. Archibald was the star performer for Aberdeen, Munro, Brewster, and Smith, also being prominent.
