Aberdeen 1 - 4 Sailors
    Charity Match for Shipwrecked Mariners' Society
Kick Off:           
Attendance: 0
Venue: Pittodrie Stadium, Aberdeen
A team of blue-jackets, who, in their own class, have an unbeaten record, met Aberdeen reserves at Pittodrie last night, and won a hard, clean game by four goals to one. At half-time the scores were a goal apiece, but in the second period the Sailors, playing well together, particularly in attack, asserted their superiority. The local reserves had a good side out, though their forwards showed up indifferently near goal. Acollection was taken in aid of the Shipwrecked Mariners' Society.
