Edinburgh City were outclassed when they met Aberdeen "A" in the first round of the 2nd XI. Cup at Pittodrie on Saturday, and had to admit defeat by ten goals to nil.

The Young Dons had matters all their own way. They claimed about four fifths of the play, and had the Amateurs hemmed in their own half of the field for the greater part of the game. The home attack was in sprightly mood, and had they taken full advantage of all their scoring opportunities the score would have been much taller.
The Amateurs' defence was overworked, while their attack, although showing smart touches, never troubled the Aberdeen defenders. Bennett, Temple and Newton, the home rear trio, had a comparatively easy day, and dealt effectively with everything that came their way.
The Young Dons' half-backs gave the Amateurs' attack little scope. Ritchie, at centre-half, was outstanding.
The attack moved sweetly. The line was well led by Devers, who was making his second appearance for the season. He was hurt in the opening game.
The only attacker in the city side who gave the home defence any trouble was C. Johnstone, at inside left, but he got little support.
