Hearts of Beath 1 - 2 Aberdeen

HT Score: Hearts of Beath 0 - 1 Aberdeen

Northern League
Hearts of Beath scorers: ?
Aberdeen scorers: Haxton, Lawrie.

06/10/1906 | KO:

Aberdeen's second string traveled to Beath on Saturday to meet the Hearts of Beath for Northern League points. The northern representation was none too strong, owing to the changes in the first team. The eleven's were:-
Aberdeen A: Lickley; Willox, Brebner; Robertson, Urquhart, Davidson; J. Robertson, Haxton, Lawrie, Brown, McKenzie.
Hearts of Beath: Donnachie; Dair, Brown; Melville, Mill, Gillespie; Fisher, Woods, Duffy (Kelty Rangers), Frew, Brown.

From the very start the game was forced into Aberdeen's division, and Lickley was twice called one to read turn. The Hearts' forwards made some bad misses, and then the ball was swept to the opposite end of the field, where the visitors forced a corner, which was only cleared after some difficulty. This was the commencement of a bombardment by the Aberdeen forwards, who adopted the system of short passing, and after a somewhat prolonged melee in front of Donnachie, Haxton got the sphere and drove it into the net. Though no further scoring resulted in the first half, both goals were repeatedly in precarious positions. The second period was also well contested, goals being secured by both sides, but with the visitors maintaining their lead.

Not "Home Buds."

There is one thing the A team cannot be accused of, and that is of reserving their best exhibitions for home crowds. They are doing better away in the securing of points than at home - a very commendable policy on their part. Rumour had it that the A's were being assisted by a Western crack, but he failed to put in an appearance, so that the team was practically that selected before leaving the Granite City. The reserves were early pressing, and from a scrimmage Haxton had the first goal with an unsavable shot. Lickley kept out all the Hearts' attempts till the second period, when a penalty was granted, and the Aberdonian very nearly stopped it. Lawrie put on the winning goal and secured the points. Aberdeen played the better football and won on their merits'. The Hearts played hard, but were erratic both at back and in the front line.
