Aberdeenshire Cup Fourth Round 
Victoria United 4 - 1 Bon-Accord
Kick Off:  2:30 PM   Turner, Watson 2, ?       Cannon  
Attendance: 0
Venue: Victoria Bridge, Aberdeen

This tie was played at Victoria Bridge Ground. The Vics had most of the play throughout, but especially in the first half, for though they managed to score only one goal through Turner, they kept the ball almost exclusively in the Bon-Accord territory. They had hard luck several times, and the Bon-Accord have to be credited with playing a fine defensive game, their backs being almost impassable. In the second period the Vics, till within quarter of an hour of the finish, had matters pretty much their own way. Watson took two goals from exceptional passing by the wings, and then the Bon-Accord centre forward, Cannon, giving him an easy chance, got the ball between the uprights. A fourth goal was notched by the Vics, who thus knocked the Bon-Accord out of the ties by 4 goals to 1.
