Congratulations had to go to B Division Arbroath for battling through to the semi-final of the national cup competition, but Aberdeen were not about to stand back and admire their opponents at neutral Dens Park. Apart from Stan Williams' brace of goals, the big news from this game was that stalwart Willie Cooper had pulled a muscle in his leg and would miss the Final a week later.
