Victoria United 2 - 5 Orion

Gershon Cup

03/04/1897 | KO:

Fine weather prevailed in Aberdeen on Saturday, and the meeting of the Orion and the Victoria United in the second match in the Gershon Cup ties drew a large crowd. The first game which took place between the United and the Aberdeen ended in a victory for the United, who, therefore, were leading in the competition by two points. Both teams were fairly well represented. At half time the Orion led by 3-2, and the final result was: Orion 5, United 2. The Orion are thus on an equal footing with the United in the competition.
