Aberdeen finished the season in good style by defeating Motherwell by 2 goals to 0. As the result of this victory, which is the first for two months, the club occupies eighth position on the table, which is an improvement of three places compared with season 1925-26.
Saturday's game, while keenly contested, was not inspired. Generally the attacks were well held by sound but not brilliant defences, and the shooting was a lost art. The half-back play, too, left much to be desired, as while the respective divisions were seen to advantage as spoilers, they kept the ball too much in the air to be of much assistance to their forwards. Both goals came in the last six minutes of the game, and when most people had resigned themselves to goal-less draw. Bruce, the home centre forward, got a pass up the middle, and brushing past the backs, easily beat McClory from close range. Shortly afterwards the same player got a second. In a race to meet a pass forward he beat the Motherwell goalkeeper, tipping the ball into the net as McClory advanced to intercept. Both goalkeepers had a fair amount of work to go through, and did well. There was not a great deal between the backs, but the Motherwell pair were both at fault when Bruce got through to score. Of the half-backs McDermid and Edward were best for Aberdeen, and of the forwards Cheyne and Bruce were most prominent. Of the Motherwell attackers Stevenson and Ferrier took the eye most, and Craig played a sound game at centre half. The attendance about 8000 was about the smallest for a League game at Pittodrie this season.
