Dundee A 1 - 1 Aberdeen

HT Score: Dundee A 0 - 1 Aberdeen

Scottish Second XI Cup
Dundee A scorers: Hutton
Aberdeen scorers: McKinlay.

08/09/1906 | KO:

Aberdeen A and Dundee A met in the first round of the 2nd XI Scottish Cup at Dens Park, Dundee, before a fairly large crowd. On the previous Saturday, at Aberdeen, Dundee A sustained a 4-0 defeat from Aberdeen A, and were eager for revenge. Teams:-
Dundee A: Crumley; Oswald, Chaplin; Watson, Ramsay, Ogilvie; Mitchell, Nimmo, Thomson, Russell, Hutton.
Aberdeen A: Lickley; Urquhart, Brebner; John Robertson, J. Simpson, Davidson; James Robertson, Lawrie, McKinley, R. Simpson, McKenzie.
Referee - Mr. Phillip, Dunfermline.

Dundee started brilliantly, and at the outset the Aberdeen goal had several narrow escapes. The Aberdeen backs were splendid, and Lickley cleared several shots smartly. A quarter of an hour from the start Aberdeen forced a corner, and Crumley, to save the goal, had to give away another corner. Aberdeen scored first, McKenzie passing to Robertson, who sent across a fine centre, from which McKinley, with a swift, low shot, netted. Dundee strove hard to equalise, and more than once came near being successful.

Immediately after the start of the second half Dundee worked into Aberdeen Territory, and Mitchell, getting the ball, crossed to Hutton, who completely beat Lickley. On equal terms, the teams struggled hard for the week, but the Stirling defence of both sides prevailed to the end, when the score was - Aberdeen A, 1; Dundee A 1.

A Draw at Dens Park.

There were considerable misgivings at Pittodrie as to how the A's would fare at Dens Park on account of the absence of "Gowie" Robertson, the popular skipper of the team. Dundee were strengthened for the cup tie, but notwithstanding this they could only repeat last year's result - a draw of one goal each. Naturally Dundee had a lot of the play at the start, as there were only two of the Aberdeen men who had seen Dens Park before. Aberdeen's defence stood up to everything they got, and eventually let their own men away, when McKinley beat Crumley with a lovely shot. In the second period from a rebound Lickley was beaten, and had Robertson paid less attention to Chaplin, Aberdeen should have won the tie, as they were all over them at the finish. A draw of one goal each was not bad, and we will have the pleasure of witnessing the replay at Pittodrie on Saturday.
