Aberdeen "A" Score Sixth Successive Win.,/p> Aberdeen "A" gained their sixth successive win at the expense of Beith, whom they beat by the odd goal in seven, at Beith.

Aberdeen opened in promising fashion, and a goal by David was disallowed for offside.
With ten minutes gone Armstrong opened Aberdeen's account.
Beith retaliated, but although J. Bell and W. O. Clark almost counted, the Aberdeen defence was never really stretched.
Ten minutes from the interval Dickie increased the visitors' total, but before half-time Narrowmore reduced the leeway.

Aberdeen got a shock when three minutes after the restart Beith drew level through Mclnnes.
The homesters held the advantage for a time, but in an Aberdeen breakaway Devlin restored the visitors' lead.
Another raid by Aberdeen resulted in David adding a fourth goal. The visitors were awarded a penalty which Sharp sent past.
Before the finish J. Bell reduced the Aberdeen lead from a penalty.
