Orion 2 - 3 Dundee A
Kick Off:    Lawrie, Lawrie       Cowie, McKay, ?  
Attendance: 0
Venue: Cattofield, Aberdeen
These teams met in a Northern League fixture at Cattofield on Saturday afternoon in presence of a fair turnout of spectators. The teams were:- Orion: Ritchie; Willox, Brebner; Currie, Low, Campbell; Prophet, J. Fraser, W. Fraser, Lawrie, Clark. Dundee A: Stewart; Jeffrey, Taylor; Halkett, Stewart, Gowans; McFarlane, Turnbull, McKay, Cowie, J. Halkett. Mr. J. Blyth, Raith Rovers, was referee.

The Dundee forwards at the outset pressed, and almost scored. The homesters, however, retaliated, and J. Fraser sent strongly into the net, but the referee ruled offside. Dundee now played the better football, and, as the result of some clever work on the part of the forwards, Cowie scored. Orion later showed better combination, and were frequently in the vicinity of the Dundee goal. At last success attended their efforts, and Lawrie, with the assistance of Clark, equalised.

On resuming, the homesters played wit great vigour, and both goals were visited in rapid succession. Ultimately Lawrie succeeded in giving Orion the lead. Dundee appeared determined to equalise, and it was not long before McKay succeeded in doing so. Before the close another goal was obtained by Dundee.
