Kick Off:    Waldron 65, Hamilton 72.       Conn (84)  
Attendance: 14,000
Venue: Pittodrie Stadium, Aberdeen
Because of poor weather, there was a poor crowd at Pittodrie to see Aberdeen record a victory over near rivals Hearts. New signing Ernie Waldron was making his debut after joining up from Crystal Palace and with the teams separated only by goal difference at kick-off there was plenty to play for.
Stan Williams twice came very close to scoring but it was the new player Waldron who eventually put his new team in front with George Hamilton following up a few minutes later. Conn pulled one back but there was only going to be one winner in this match .
