Brechin City 4 - 1 Aberdeen

HT Score: Brechin City 3 - 0 Aberdeen

Northern League
Aberdeen scorers: Unknown.

04/02/1911 | KO:

There was a good attendance at Nursery Park, Brechin, on Saturday afternoon, when these teams met in a Northern League fixture. Mr. J Prophet, Forfar, was referee, and the teams were as follows:-

Brechin City: Balfour; Strachan, Lyon; Knowles, Findlay, Henderson; Murray, Sherret, Glen, Hampton, Milne.
Aberdeen A: Greig; Macfarlane, Harper; Edgar, Watson, Low; Hay, Scott, Hendry, Edwards, Neilson.

Up Brechin kicked off towards the north goal, and play had a most sensational opening. The home stars leading by two goals before the game had been 5 minutes in progress. City were playing a sound game, and had Aberdeen on a string, and shortly after scored another goal.

In the second half Aberdeen took up the running, and for a time the Brechin goal was constantly threatened. From a well-placed corner kick, Aberdeen secured their first and only goal. The ball was beautifully placed, and being surrounded by a bunch of players, was sent into the net. This stimulated Brechin, and they had again a large share in the play, and with a combined piece of work added a fourth point. There was no further scoring.
