ANOTHER DON FROM S.A.

News was received by cablegram from Mr P. Travers, the Aberdeen F.C. manager, yesterday evening that he had signed a goalkeeper. The player is Kelly, of Pirates' Club, Bloemfontein. His club has not been beaten this season. This is the third South African signed by the Aberdeen Club. Strauss came from Benoni, and Currer from Pretoria. Kelly will probably return with the touring party next month.
