East Stirling 0 - 2 Aberdeen

HT Score: East Stirling 0 - 0 Aberdeen

Dewar Shield Semi Final
Aberdeen scorers: Simpson, McKinlay.

27/04/1907 | KO:

At Falkirk, before 1000 spectators. Teams:-

East Stirlingshire: Caldwell; Orrock, Reid: Stirling, Morris, Mitchell; Chalk, McMillan, McNair, Henderson, McTaggart.
Aberdeen: Mutch; Willox, Brebner; Davidson, Simpson, G. Robertson; J. Robertson, Ward, McKinley, Lawrie, McKenzie.
Referee - Mr. Liddell, Glasgow.

Aberdeen Started off with vigour, and could easily have scored but for the erratic shooting shown by the forwards, Ward and Simpson both throwing away good chances. East Stirlingshire carried the ball to the visitors' territory. Mutch had to look lively, a beautiful shot by Morris just going over the bar. Caldwell, for East Stirlingshire, was very safe, the manner in which he accounted for dangerous shots by McKinley being really brilliant.

East Stirlingshire started without Reid, their left back, and Aberdeen nearly got through immediately. Willox was hurt, and had to leave the field: thus both teams were without a back. Aberdeen pressed hard, and Simpson completely beat Caldwell. Before time McKinley also scored for Aberdeen.

The Reserves beat East Stirlingshire.

It was a day of success for the Aberdeen F.C., and those in charge can well afford-to be somewhat elated at the doings of their respective teams. There was a general feeling prior to Saturday that the Dewar Shield would find a resting-place once more in Stirlingshire, for the Aberdeen team have gone off form so often this season that, to put it mildly, if they put up a good fight it was about all they were expected to do. Evidently, they thought differently themselves, and we give them every credit for their laudable intentions, for they brought off a splendid win against the 'Shire by two goals to nil. The home side never looked like winning, even with the wind in their favour during the whole of the first half, so well did the visiting halves and backs play, while Mutch formed an important factor between the posts. The 'Shire played hard without success, and their supporters were disappointed, though they had to admit that the visitors were the better side on the day's play. John James Simpson had his usual goal, McKinley being credited with the second, but, though these were the actual scorers, the whole side played splendidly, and we hope they will not rest satisfied till they win the Shield.
