Fraserburgh Put Up Good Fight at Home.

The visit of a team from the Aberdeen Football Club to Fraserburgh last night brought out a crowd 800, the largest of the season, at Bellslea Park.

Disappointment was expressed the absence of Cheyne and Yorston. The team, however, gave a clever exhibition, winning by 3-1 and having no difficulty in beating the homesters, who gave a very good account of themselves in the first halt.
Fifteen minutes from the start McLaren counted with a long shot which Anderson would have saved had not the ball been deflected in its flight by hitting a home player. Yuill saved from Burnett at the cost of a corner. The resultant kick was cleared, but Hendry trapped the ball ten yards out and, amid enthusiasm, registered the equaliser.
Through Love, Aberdeen took the lead about ten minutes after the interval, and midway through the period Hickie put the visitors still further ahead with a snappy shot that went over Anderson's head into the net.
