Reserves Win At Home St Mirren A Outclassed

With the assistance of several of the first team who had recently been off injured, Aberdeen A returned to their usual form on Saturday, when they defeated Saint Mirren A by four goals to one. Wilson, who has - for a time at least - been relegated to the reserves, early figured in the game. Aberdeen took up the aggressive instanter, and within 30 seconds of the start Wilson neatly netted the sphere with an impossible shot. The saints seemed hardly to realise it. They were undaunted, however, and soon were at King, who, with the sun shining strongly in his face, left in the equaliser. The crowd expressed their displeasure and disappointment in forcible language. The home forwards were in form, and, assisted by a willing half line, secured a lead of three goals to one before half-time arrived, Douglas securing two goals in quick succession.

Although there were occasional bright efforts in the course of the first half, the play, on the whole, was not of an exciting nature and the second half was even less interesting than the first. Hannah and Harper were too strong a defence for the Saints' forwards, and, but for King's single misjudgment, would have had a clean sheet. After a period of up and down play, in which the kicking was hard and often erratic, McIntosh changed the aspect of matters by scoring the only point in the second half. The Paisley men tried hard to add to their score, but failed, and the game ended with Aberdeen leading by four goals to one.
