Venue: Grant Street Park, Inverness
Clach Win on the Post
Continuing their northern proved, Aberdeen played Clachnacuddin at Inverness last evening before the record crowd.

The opening exchanges were of an even description. Clachnacuddin, though strong kicking and rushing, often got into the vicinity of King, and a little coolness would have brought them a goal. As it was, the brilliant kicking of Colman, and the smart clearing of King were admired. The Aberdeen forwards had many clever runs, the specially Milne and Main, but all over the finishing was lamentably weak. At the same time, praise must be awarded to the Clach's defence, which Davidson (centre half) stood above the other's. Taking the half although over, some nice football was displayed by the visitors.

The second period was of a much livelier description, some exciting play being at times witnessed. Aberdeen put more life into their play, and if they did not score a goal they had only their own wretched shooting to blame. As the game preceded, Clach's play improved, the halves giving the forwards every opportunity. Ross, the local outside-bright, sent across a perfect centre, which Mackay picked up, and, racing in between the backs, gave king no chance. Aberdeen now went into the game with vigour, but Clach packed their goal, and for a time defied them. With 5 minutes to go Aberdeen put on severe pressure, and, from a nicely-placed corner by Milne, Main equalised. From the kick-off Clachnacuddin pressed, and, amidst great excitement, Cameron slipped the ball past King. It was too late for Aberdeen to equalise, and the result of an interesting game was - Clachnacuddin, 2; Aberdeen, 1.
