Young Dons Out of Luck at Falkirk

Aberdeen did not deserve to lose Reserve League points at Brockville Park. They had more the than the homesters but did not produce the same snap at close quarters.
Manson, the home team's clever inside left got both goals. Bruce, who had a good game in the Aberdeen goal, was blameless, and he got good support from Preston, who kept a firm grip on the Falkirk right wing.
McKenzie was asset at centre half-back, but Callander was disappointing as leader of the attack. In the second half the line was switched to read Callander, Hume, McCall, Mills and Paterson.
McCall was the most forceful forward, Mills has palpably slowed down.
