Aberdeenshire Cup Final 
Orion 4 - 1 Caledonian, Aberdeen
Kick Off:  3:15 PM         Annand  
Attendance: 0
Venue: Victoria Bridge, Aberdeen
The Orion and the Caledonian, before a rather small crowd of spectators, tried conclusions at Victoria Bridge Grounds for possession of the Aberdeenshire Cup.The game was not very interesting, as after the Caledonian had scored eith minutes from the start through Annand, the Orion took matters pretty much in hand, and had decidedly the best of the exchanges. When ends were changed the stripes were leading by a goal. In the second forty-five they increased this advantage, and retired cupholders by 4 goals to 1. The Caledonian played pluckily, but throughout were outmatched by their opponents, who have shown better football many a time.
