These teams met at Falkirk in the second division of the Scottish League. Teams:- Aberdeen: Macfarlane; Murray, McNicol; Halkett, Strang, Low; Robertson, McNicol, Lowe, McAulay, Ritchie. East Stirlingshire:- Adam; Smith, Thomas McCulloch; Reid, Morris, Prentice; McCulloch, Ivory, Hotchkiss, White, Tennant. Referee, Mr. McLeod, Dumbarton.
Aberdeen kicked off against the wind. A breakaway by Stirlingshire was stopped by Murray and McNicol, and McAulay and Ritchie took up the running. Soon after Lowe opened the scoring for Aberdeen. The 'Shire then invaded, but Macfarlane smartly saved several well-directed shots. For a time the 'Shire had the best of the game, but they failed to find an opening. Aberdeen now had a spell of pressing, but play was soon confined to the other end, and Macfarlane distinguished himself by his smart fisting powers. At half time Aberdeen led by one goal to nil.
Play in the second half was for a time very even, both teams having a spell of pressing. Lowe scored twice, and a third goal was added before the finish; while Reid opened the scoring for Stirlingshire.
