1922: DUNDEE POLICE UNLUCKY Aberdeen Police, 2; Dundee Police, 1 In a rain and sleet storm, and on a pitch which in parts was completely submerged, the Aberdeen and Dundee Police fought for football supremacy at Pittodrie Park yesterday. The result - a win for Aberdeen by 2 goals to 1 - was rather a "miscarriage of justice" on the actual run of the play, even although credit is due the Aberdeen Police defence for its splendid resistance. In the first half Dundee had the wind in their favour, and when J. Dickie scored after twenty minutes the goal was overdue. On the only occasion Aberdeen were really dangerous Mitchell scored the equaliser. In the second half, although playing against the wind, Dundee monopolised the pressure, but the home team concentrated in front of goal and many shots were blocked. In Aberdeen's only breakaway Chalmers, shooting from the middle of a pool of water, obtained the winning goal, Addison being blinded by the spray. After the game the teams were entertained in the Northern Hotel, the company including Chief Constable Anderson, Aberdeen City Police, and Chief Constable Gauld, Aberdeenshire County Constabulary. The teams were: Aberdeen - Burnett; Booth and Gray; Smith, Pine, and Yule; Chalmers, Williamson, Mitchell, Dargie and Shepherd. Dundee - Addison: Kay and Cross: Dall, Malcolm, and Forbes; M'Cabe, Boath, J. Dickie, Cairns, and J. D. Dickie. Referee - Mr Peter Craigmyle, Aberdeen.
