Fraserburgh Beaten At Pittodrie

Aberdeen A, with an experimental team, encountered stiff opposition from Fraserburgh in an Aberdeenshire and District League match at Pittodrie on Saturday afternoon, and just won through by the only goal of the game. About 3000 spectators braved the stormy weather, and saw quite an interesting and well-contested game.
Both sides were well matched, and the respective defences had a hard afternoon?s work. W. K. Jackson, who led the home attack, nearly scored in the first minute, after a clever run, in which he beat two opponents. Then Love, an outside left from Kirkintilloch Rob Roy, whoi gave a fine display throughout, tested Anderson, the visiting goalkeeper, with several hot shots, and was unlucky enough to hit the top of the crossbar with a shot that looked like counting all the way. Shakiness in the home defence let the Fraserburgh men in, and Crawford, Turner, and Waddell all had tries. The first half ended with the score sheet blank.
In the second period the Broch team, with wind and snow behind them, forced the pace strongly, and it was fortunate that Moore and Jackson were in good form. The failure of the home inside men, Paton and R. Bruce, robbed the line of its effectiveness, and the careful covering-up tactics and clean clearances of the visiting defenders frustrated any scoring chances that came the way of the the Aberdeen forwards. W. K. Jackson scored the solitary goal from a penalty kick.
Fraserburgh were almost worth a draw for their plucky fight, in which they showed remarkably good football both individually and as a combination. Aberdeen's team experiments proved a success in so far as the centre-forward and outside left berths were concerned while Moore was good at centre-half.
