The Aberdeen 6 - 0 Granite City
Kick Off:           
Attendance: 0
Venue: Holburn Cricket Ground, Aberdeen
These clubs met at Holburn on Saturday. The ground was in first-rate condition, but play was completely spoiled by a high wind blowing from goal to goal. Plying with the wind in the first 45, Aberdeen easily held the upper hand, and scored three goals. On change of ends the home team still had best of it, the Granite City forwards, though assisted by the wind, making no headway against the Aberdeen back division. Other three goals were scored by the ground men, who were thus victorious by 6 to 0.
