Revenge For Airdrie 'A'

Young Dons Caught Napping at Broomfield.

Aberdeen '"A" were caught napping in their Alliance League game with Airdrie "A" at Broomfield. The homesters, who were defeated 10-0 at Pittodrie a few weeks ago, captured the points by the only goal of the match.

Aberdeen were early aggressive, and after an Initial burst staged a great concerted run down three-quarters of the field. An offside decision turned the play.
After ten minutes Airdrie took the lead in peculiar fashion. Westland caught a shot by Law and threw the ball out but the homesters appealed for a goal, claiming that the ball was over the line. The goal was allowed.
Airdrie were stronger in defence than usual, Ogilvie being specially good, and he was missed when he retired hurt after a collision with McDermid. Airdrieonians, in accordance with their Alliance policy this season, were fielding a fair sprinkling of Trialists.
They revealed an amazing degree of combination, but their methods were unorthodox. Aberdeen, too, were not lacking in cohesion, and they had the advantage territorially, although they could not turn it to material account, despite fact that Ogilvie's first-half injury was still troubling him.
In comparatively few raids Airdrie were always more dangerous, and they came near scoring every time.
