By the narrow margin of 3 goals to 2, Aberdeen Reserves were beaten by Montrose in a Northern League game at Montrose. Montrose had much the better of the opening stages, and after severe pressure Nicholson opened the scoring for them. The home team continued to have the best of matters, and it was only occasionally and Aberdeen attacked. Near the interval Tullis effected a bad clearance, and McLeod put Aberdeen on equal terms, and the teams crossed over with the score at one all.
Aberdeen showed too much better advantage after the re-start, but the home defence was sound. Following upon a free-kick Yule put Montrose on the lead, while later Yule again scored. Aberdeen pressed after this, and Robertson scored, but the game resulted in a win for the home team.
