Aberdeenshire Cup Third Round 
The Aberdeen 6 - 1 Ashley
Kick Off:    J. M. Key (2), Ketchen (2), Mitchell, and Allan       ?  
Attendance: 0
Venue: Chanonry, Aberdeen
Played at Chanonry grounds. Aberdeen won the toss. During the first half of the game no really good play was exhibited. In the second part, however, the Aberdeen Club showed up in something like their usual form, and goal after goal was registered in rapid succession. The points were taken by J. M. Key (2), Ketchen (2), Mitchell, and Allan. For the Ashley it is not too much to say that Caithness displayed an excellent defence, and, but for his efforts, Aberdeen's victory must have proved more decisive than it actually did. The scores were: Aberdeen, 6 goals; Ashley, 1 goal.
