Aberdeen 6 - 0 Fraserburgh Select

HT Score: Aberdeen 3 - 0 Fraserburgh Select

Aberdeen scorers: MacEchern, Thomson, Hume (Pen), Hay, Wilson, Burnett.

03/11/1909 | KO:

There was a meagre attendants of spectators when Fraserburgh kicked west. Forceful work by Barnett, centre, so the visitors get a corner, but Bain missed a golden chance by shooting recklessly. Smart work by the Aberdeen centre transfer to play, but Tait relieved. The visitors again made King their objective, and he had to deal with shots from J. Burnett and McNab. McEchern relieved, and, running down on his own, beat Noble. After the Fraserburgh keeper had saved from Burnett and Hay, Thomson scored again for Aberdeen from Jaffrey's cross. After subsequent periods of pressure and sundry bursts away by the visitors van, Burnett, the local centre, was tripped in the penalty area, and Hume, taking the kick, scored. One Aberdeen easily had the best of matters, but made no really very earnest efforts to score.

Aberdeen were persistently aggressive in the second period, and the visitors seldom got over the maid line. Had it not been that the homesters indulged in over much individualism goals would have fallen to them on numerous occasions. However, the Fraserburgh goal had narrow escapes. Noble, in goal, the specially distinguished himself, and several great shots from McEchern were well but dealt with by him. Hume, Henderson, and Macfarlane all had good tries. After Fraserburgh had had an unsuccessful visit to King, Hay scored a fourth, and Wilson added another immediately after. King went out forward near the close, when the game became farcical. Burnett scored a sixth.
