Lethal Touch From Henry

DEFEATS in the 2nd XI Cup at Dundee and the Reserve League at Ayr knocked a bit of the spirit out of the young Dons, but the confidence came roaring back with last week's 5-2 home win over Dumbarton A.
Several players were out of touch in the games at Dens Park and Somerset Park, and they made it a bit obvious by not wanting the ball, and not making themselves 'available' to colleagues in trouble. Jim Crawford was one of those under a cloud, but he should have got a morale boost with that cracking goal he scored against Dumbarton. It was quite a day for 'firsts' against the Boghead reserves - others who got their name on the scoresheet for the first time were Ernie Drews and Ian Wilson.
