Yule's Cleverness.With both sides striving hard for the lead, the play in the second half was not quite so accurate as it had been earlier, but the game never flagged in interest. Most of the danger to the home goal came from Yule on the Aberdeen left. Fulton, the Clydebank inside right, was hurt in collision, and had to be carried off, but he quickly returned. Aberdeen were the more aggressive side, but their finishing was none too good. Several times Rankine all but through and on one occasion McTurk was fortunate in being able to dispossess Yule close to the goal. Middleton at outside right for Aberdeen, was injured, and his consequent inability to show his usual sprightliness detracted from the effectiveness of the attack. The feature of the half was the concerted play of both sets of defenders against clever forwards. So far as actual pressure went Aberdeen might have won, but everything considered, a draw did justice to both teams.
About the Players.On the Aberdeen side Anderson was the essence of reliability in goal, and has several clever saves. Forsyth was the better back, but Hutton also well and was more judicious than in recent games. All three half-backs gave an excellent, account of themselves, none better than A. R. Grosert. Nippy and very tricky, and varying his play delightfully, Yule was the most prominent of the forwards, playing one of his best games. Rankine distributed play well at centre forward and worried the opposing defence, but is to be preferred at inside left. Middleton, who was obviously unfit, was unable to do himself justice. Thomson and McLaughlin, in the inside position, carried through some clever individual movements. They plied their wingers well but did not give sufficient support to Rankine at centre forward. In the Clydebank game, McTurk acquitted himself well, and took his side out of some trying situations. After an indifferent start, Stevenson and Ferguson played well at back, even if the first named never really equal to coping with Yule. Neish and Lawson performed creditably at half-back, and their most 'dangerous forward was the diminutive McLavin. Cameron played a dashing game at centre-forward, but was generally well held by Milne, and for the first time since becoming a senior he failed to score.
