Aberdeen 2 - 1 Queen of the South

Scottish Reserve League

21/02/1948 | KO:

Young Dons Excel But Lack Punch

Queen of the South "A", with seven players of 1st League experience in the side, were expected to give the less experienced young Dons a hard run for the points at Pittodrie, and when the visitors were presented with a goal early in the game it looked as though the locals would be up against it. However, the home players set about the job in a business like fashion and eventually won by the odd goal in three.
With keen tackling from both sides, the play never reached a very high standard, but was always quite interesting.
Ian Jamieson, back on leave from the Army, had quite a good game at outside left, while Hume was more than useful at outside left, a position unusual for Willie until a few weeks ago. Callander had both goals for the reserves.
The "B" team travelled to Banff where they won by 5 goals to 2. A . Martin* at left half played very well and is likely to show his paces at Pittodrie soon. Martin, who had experience with Wolves, has been fixed up by Mr Halliday.
The "A" team are at Airdrie in search of League points. We are hopeful that they will record yet another win.

*That could be Fred Martin before he converted to goalkeeper.

A Poor Game at Pittodrie

THE most satisfactory feature of the Young Dons' 2-1 win over Queen of the South "A" was the result. The display of both teams was poor.
The Young Dons made an unfortunate start when they presented Queen's, with a gift goal in the opening minutes.
Apart from his early lapse in failing to stop a simple pass back, Scott, the Aberdeen 'keeper, did well.
Robertson, the former Dundonald Bluebell player, gave an intelligent first half display at right half, but seemed to tire after the interval.
Callander, centre forward, got both goals, but was guilty of missing chances.
