Attendance: 2,000
Venue: Advocates Park, Aberdeen
Juniors Beat Seniors At Aberdeen
At Advocates' Park last night a select of East End and Hawthorn got the better of an Aberdeen F.C. eleven by 3 goals to 2.
The match was on behalf of the funds of the two junior clubs mentioned, who are lessees of Advocates' Park, and attracted fully 2000 spectators.
Both teams served a refreshing exhibition of fast and clever football, and the juniors gave a surprisingly good display.
There was really little between the teams, and a draw would have done justice to both. The scorers were McDonald, Sharp (own goal), and Stephen for the juniors, and Paterson (2) for Aberdeen.
