Young Dons Failure


Aberdeen "A" jeopardised their chances of retaining the Alliance League championship when they fell by three clear goals to the Queen of the South reserves at Dumfries.

Celtic "A," with four games in hand, are now only five points behind the leaders.
Saturday's game was fifty minutes late in starting owing to breakdown in the train in which the Aberdeen players travelled.
Aberdeen "A" opened strongly and a try by Warnock almost did the trick. In five minutes, however, Queen's took the lead, Heywood scoring from a well-placed free kick by Oakes. Smith, the Aberdeen 'keeper, was kept busy and it was not long before Heywood put the homesters two up.
The Young Dons could not get going and in outfield play were outmanoeuvred. Near the close of the first half, Taylor should have opened the visitors' account when he missed from close range.
Only splendid saving by Smith presented the Dumfries reserves from going further ahead just after the resumption. Heywood, however, completed his hat-trick and put the issue beyond doubt.
The Young Dons' half-back line did not function sweetly, with the result :hat the forwards did not get as many chances as usual.
