Montrose 1 - 1 Orion
Kick Off:           
Attendance: 0
Venue: Links Park, Montrose
Links Park was opened on Saturday in wretched weather, rain falling in bucketsfu'. The Montrose team, minus three or their best men, Allan (goalkeeper) and Mackie and Keiller (forwards), all engaged in the county match at Dundee, had for opponents the Aberdeen Charity Cup holders, the Orion. Neither team made a good show, though one or two individual players in both teams did some good work, notably Gloag and Leggat for the Orion, At half-time the game stood 1 each, and on crossing over neither could make more of it, and a slow game ended in a draw.
