Keith Tough Test for Dons

This game, played last Sunday afternoon, was the testimonial for long serving Keith defender Neil Gibson and with no SPL card, the Dons, with Gardner Speirs in charge, were able to send a strong squad to Kynoch Park.

However, the Press and Journal Highland League champions, despite having played a league match at Wick twenty four hours earlier, made Aberdeen fight all the way and in the end were very unlucky not to get at least a share of the spoils.

Both keepers, Ian Thain and Dave Preece, were in fine form, each producing several top class saves throughout the ninety minutes, although the woodwork also came to the rescue of both. Dons youngster Calum Bett saw his header come back off the crossbar in the first half and at the other end, Derek Nicol shot against the post from fifteen yards.

The goal which settled matters finally came with just a minute remaining when Andy Dow, on as a second half substitute, found Robbie WINTERS, with the in-form striker making no mistake from fifteen yards out.
