A Record at Fraserburgh.The Hearts would have been better pleased had the result been closer, but they were in no way disheartened at 8 goals being put up against them, on Saturday by Aberdeen-A. Right from the very start the A's took the game in hand, and, the result of a fine cross from the right, Lawrie scored. This early reverse told its tale, as the visitors lashed the ball away from wing to wing till they had five goals on before the interval. Playing up better in the second period the Hearts not only scored but kept a firmer hold of Aberdeen's front line and prevented them from putting on double figures. It seemed to be the intention of the A's to get a big score on for they never slackened their efforts till the whistle sounded with the score 8-r in their favour.
The Players.The chief fault to be found with the Hearts' players was their lack of experience. They have the makings of a good side, but until they meet all kinds of opposition they will never succeed. The halves had little or no understanding amongst themselves nor with those behind them, and if they had a good coach to make them study these things we are sure they would be a good side. Aberdeen's forwards were in spanking form, the halves splendid as usual, while the backs and goalkeeper did all that was required of them. The gate-drawings were the largest ever taken at a football match in Fraserburgh, amounting to over £11.
