Aberdeenshire Cup Semi Final 
24/01/1891
 
Victoria United 1 - 3 Orion
Kick Off:    ?       Leggat, ?, ?  
Attendance: 0
Venue: Victoria Bridge, Aberdeen
This postponed semi-final tie in the Aberdeenshire Cup competition was played at Victoria Bridge Ground before a larger crowd than has been seen at a football match in Aberdeen for some time past. Both clubs were represented by their full teams. The game opened vigorously, and early Victoria United pressed, and ought to have scored. The Orion then got upon the ball, and Leggat notched the first point. In the second period Orion again lowered their opponents' colours twice, while the Vics, secured two points, one of which, got by Turner, was disallowed on the ground of off-side. The tie ended in the victory of the Orion by 3 to 1. In the final tie the Caledonian and the Orion will try conclusions.
