AMAZING GAME. Aberdeen's Experience at Burnley.

Opening a short tour in England, Aberdeen had an amazing experience in their game with Burnley at Turf Moor. The game resulted in a win for Burnley by 9 goals to 5.

At the end of half hour Aberdeen, who had given a brilliant exhibition, particularly their forwards, led by 3-0, Cheyne and Yorston (2) being the marksmen. At that stage Aberdeen appeared to have the game well won, but they eased off, and before half-time Storer counted for Burnley.
In the second half Pemberton replaced Beel, the home centre-forward, who was injured, and a remarkable change came over the game.
McCluggage scored for Burnley from a penalty kick, and subsequently the English team's attack ran riot and scored six goals in fifteen minutes. Wallace, Page. Pemberton, Brest (2), and O'Dowd all beat Blackwell, the Aberdeen defence cracking up badly.
Subsequently Aberdeen rallied, and Yorston completed his hat-trick. Cheyne netted a penalty goal, and before the close Steel got a ninth goal for Burnley.

Aberdeen will play Blackburn Rovers Blackburn to-night.
