Kick Off:           
Attendance: 0
Venue: Central Park, Aberdeen
This fixture was played at Central Park, Kittybrwster. Teams: Orion: Cameron; Ross, Mackay; Wright, Dawson, Currie; Fraser, Thom, Gloag, Forsyth, Leggat. Lochee United: Soutar ; Bell, McLeish; Burgess, Rattray, Reid; Stewart, McLaren, Murray, Haxton, Downie.

Orion commenced hostilities, and in a few minutes registered a couple of goals. After this play was fast and open, both teams being pretty equally matched, and although strenuous attempts were made on either side, nothing was scored, and at half time the position of affairs remained unaltered.

After the restart the game was characterised by even play, but towards the close the Orion pressed. The defence of the United, however, was too good, and when time was called the game remained unaltered. Result: Orion, 2 goals; Lochee United, 0.
