Gibson Gives Best Display

THE Young Dons scored a well-merited 4-1 victory over Falkirk "A" at Pittodrie on Saturday.

They had a big pull at half back, where Anderson, Thomson, and Waddell (who was having his first try-out since his injury against Hibs) were mainly responsible for the Aberdeen domination.
Bobby Gibson gave his best display since joining Aberdeen, and got his first goal for his new club.
The remaining two goals came from Harrv Yorston, on short leave from the Army. He had a grand game.
Millar sent across some good balls from the right wing, and left winger Martin was much too lively for Tyrrell, the Falkirk right back.
Ashe was the more consistent of the home backs, and though Johnstone had a good game in goal he was at fault vhen Inglis scored for Falkirk.
