match report 1899-00 fixture list
Orion 1 - 0 Inverness Caledonian
Kick Off:           
Attendance: 0
Venue: Cattofield, Aberdeen
The meeting of the two League champions at Cattofield gave the Orion the opportunity of trying a re-arrangement of their team: Livingston and Ross being drawn into the half-back line, where they proved a success. Strang, the new back, only gave an indifferent exhibition. The result, as all know, was 1-0 in favour of the Stripes.
The cup-tie with Peterhead is to be played at Cattofield, Peterhead having agreed, for a consideration, to play the tie there.
