Partick Thistle gained an easy victory over Aberdeen at Glasgow. Aberdeen were weakly represented. In the first half the visitors had the assistance of the wind, but the Thistle were easily the superior team, and in five minutes Whittle opened the scoring from a penalty kick. Before the interval, Reid the Thistle's centre forward, performed the "hat trick." After the interval the visitors came more into the game, but they could make no impression on the home defence, their forwards being very erratic at close quarters. The attendance numbered about 5000.
