Wee Dons 'Old Firm' Net 1-2

We had no trouble in beating Dumbarton reserves by four goals to one at Pittodrie last Saturday, and followed that on Sunday beating two junior selects by three goals to one in both games.
Jocky Scott makingone of his rare appearances for the reserves, showed that he is in a class by himself when playing for us, his sharpness, skill and finishing ability stands out a mile. His two goals were gems and his linking up with Ian Gibson, John McMaster and Davie Robb was good to watch.
Davie Robb scored a good goal with his head from a cross by Bobby Glennie. Davie is not the best header of a ball at the club, but he can be proud of that one. John McMaster, our other scorer, finished off a move started by Davie and carried on by Jocky Scott (That's these two old fellas again).
Of the younger lads i the team, Alex McLeish again showed what a fine prospect he is. Neil Cooper was not at his best, but he had two games in mid week for the Scottish Youths in Manchester and did not arrive in Aberdeen until Thursday afternoon. He must have been a bit tired. Bobbie Glennie has often asked me to play him as a striker, but after his glaring misses on Saturday and Sunday he has "nae chance."
We had Brian Johnston [Trialist] of Burbank playing for us on the left wing and he showed a lot of promise. We will be keeping a watch on Brian and will be giving him another chance to show his paces. It was good of Peter Fraser, the Burbank Secretary, to allow Brian to play for us despite his team having a cup tie. Fortunately they managed a 1-1 draw, so with Brian back to play for them they should win the replay.

Our team was: McLean, Glennie, Fraser, Gibson, McLeish, Cooper, Scott, Rougvie, Robb, McMaster, Johnston. Subs: Jarvie, Rodgers.

Incidentally when John McMaster scored our fourth goal it was out 50th League goal of the season.
