Player's Leg Broken At Pittodrie

There was little to enthuse over in the display of either team in the Alliance game at Pittodrie between Aberdeen "A" and St Johnstone "A," and only the fact that the home forwards were slightly more penetrative than those of the Saints gave them the points. An unfortunate accident to W. Chalmers, the ex-Aberdeen Tramway and Liverpool outside left, who was playing on the visiting right wing, seemed to unnerve both sets of players, and led to a display of football of a very mediocre standard. Chalmers had the misfortune to have his left leg broken at the in collision with the home right half, who figured at left back for the day. As for the game itself, was uninteresting for the most part. Love, the best forward afield, scored early for Aberdeen, who led at the interval by a goal. Cheyne increased the lead with a fine shot in the second half, and, before the end, Macfarlane scored a characteristic solo goal. Govan, the best forward for the visitors, got their solitary point with the last kick of the match. But for the loss of Chalmers the visitors would have given a better account of themselves, as their defence was more balanced than that of Aberdeen. Their forwards lacked finishing ability, however, for which Blackwell was no doubt thankful. Aberdeen's best were Love, Cheyne, Macfarlane, and Ross, and Saints were best served by Harris, McClure, Sharp, McLean, White, and Govan.
