On Saturday afternoon the members of the Victoria United met the Camelon, Stirlingshire, at Wellington Grounds. The teams were: Victoria United: Gray; Anderson, Thomson; Ritchie, Hickie, and Ross; Turner, Benzie, Sutherland, Annand, Ferries. Camelon: McHugh; Burns, Donegal; Drummond, Inglis, McGrcgor; Laird, McKean, Shaw, Spiers, Fraser.
The local men won the toss and, favoured by the wind during the first half, had the best of the game. Three goals followed each other in quick succession, and not until half-time was about up did the strangers get a chance. Working well together the team, before the whistle blew, scored two goals.
The home team in the second half had the wind in their faces, but notwithstanding they made several plucky attempts to get the ball over. The strangers, on the other hand, made several rushes, but were always repulsed by the Vics. On one occasion they got dangerously near the Aberdeen goal and the ball was sent through, but off-side was given. The Camelon failed to improve, and at the close had only the three gained in the first half in their favour, but the home team, by a clever bit of play on the part of Annand, added another to the Aberdeen score. Result: Victoria United 4, Camelon 3.
Throughout the Aberdeen combination played well together, and Hickie, Turner, Annand, and Gray each distinguished themselves.
