Ordinary Game

Unpromising conditions rather than lack of interest was probably responsible for the meager attendants at Pittodrie Park last night, when an Aberdeen eleven opposed the local Harp in an ordinary match. A well contested game was witnessed, and the result - a 3 goal draw - was the fairest attainable.
Mr. Arthur Watt had charge of the following players:-

To Aberdeen A: Greig; Mitchell, Hannah; Davidson, Watson, R. Findlay; Towns, Hendry, J. McCunn, King, J. Edgar.
Harp: Herd; Bell, W. Brebner; Robertson, Anderson, Munro; J. Ferries, Innes, Hamilton, McLean, Murphy.

Harp played surprisingly good football in the opening stages, and for the most part were the aggressors. Bell opened the scoring from a free kick, and then McCunn equalised with a good effort. Harp, not to be outdone, again forced matters, and Ferries put his side ahead with the flag cross which glanced home off the post. Retaliate in work by Aberdeen saw towns equalise in a similar fashion. Before the interval, more free put harp ahead.

Both goalkeepers had a busy time in the second period, although the only goal of the half was the equaliser neatly taken by Edgar. Play was interesting and clean, and both from playing and spectacular points of view the game throughout was interesting. The new back tried by Aberdeen showed good speed, I and, while he got in a good kick a occasionally, his tackling was weak. Amateur Findlay played a remarkably good game considering he was opposed to such a flier as "Duffy" Ferries, the local champion sprinter.
