Reserves Just Fail

But Still at Top of Alliance Table

There is no change at the top the Alliance League table. Although Aberdeen " A " were defeated by the odd goal in five at Douglas Park, their challengers for League leadership, Celtic " A," went under to the Hearts reserves at Tynecastle.

The young Dons are two points ahead of both the Celtic and Kilmarnock reserves, but Celtic have played a game less, while Killie have played a match more.
The Aberdeen reserves went down fighting at Hamilton. From the kick-off they were on the attack, and Taylor had a certain counter blocked on the goalline. After only eight minutes Lang gave the Dons the lead. Receiving a pass from Ritchie Smith, he gave Jack no chance with a rocket shot.
"Accies" were livelier after this, and the young Dons' goal underwent a siege, but the defence held out.

,b>From 20 Yards,/p> The home side equalised when Watson got through to score a grand goal from twenty yards.
Exchanges became keener after the interval, and both defences were kept on the hop. Brown almost put the visitors on the lead, but Jack effected a fine clearance. Soon afterwards Johnstone again distinguished himself with a great one-handed save from Wilkinson.
Hamilton came away strongly, and twenty-two minutes from the end Gilmore deceived Johnstone to give them the lead. Aberdeen replied strongly, but ten minutes from the end McGonagle put the homesters further ahead, finding the net from a free-kick. Near the end of a hard, fast game, Scott, the young Dons' leader, reduced the leeway.
Aberdeen A fought strongly to get on level terms again, but the home defence held out till the end.
