The Aberdeen 7 - 2 Bon-Accord
Kick Off:  3:30 PM          
Attendance: 0
Venue: Chanonry, Aberdeen
In their match with the Bon-Accord at Chanonry on Saturday last the Aberdeen in the first half played a good game, but in the second period the forwards did not do at all well. The centre man was rather selfish, and the outside left did not show the same form as he displayed the previous Saturday. There was not a single duffer in the Bon-Accord ranks. The centre and the outside right men played extremely well. In the course of the match the general opinion among the spectators was that the Bon was the best Links team that had ever appeared at Chanonry, and far superior to any of the clubs in the habit of playing in the People's Park.

The Aberdeen played the Bon-Accord at Chanonry and displayed some capital work. Indeed, during the first half their exhibition was very superior. The game ended - Aberdeen, 7; Bon-Accord, 2.
