The Aberdeen 9 - 2 Playfair
Kick Off:           
Attendance: 0
Venue: Chanonry, Aberdeen
Saturday's fixtures were fortunately not of any consequence, so that their almost general collapse owing to the tempestuous weather was not the cropper it might have been. How it did blow and snow, to be sure! The wind was in that erratic and tantalising mood which makes it impossible for one to judge what it is to do next, and the heavy showers of snow, caught up and carried in clouds for a distance and then violently let loose to choke and smother one, provided an entertainment which could only be enjoyed thoroughly by those people who remained indoors, and viewed it from their windows. And yet there were a few sportsmen found with sufficient temerity to brave the blast

Aberdeen v Playfair came off alright, although this could hardly be said for the play, and the home team proved victors by 9 goals to 2.
