match report 1955-56 fixture list
Div 1 (Old) 
Stirling Albion 0 - 2 Aberdeen
Kick Off:          Boyd 21, Yorston 82.  
Attendance: 5,500
Venue: Annfield Stadium, Stirling
With the shocking weather we have been experiencing, most pitches are difficult to play on and it's unlikely that Annfield Park with its clay soil will be any different from the great majority. However, it's the same for both sides and the Dons will just have to adapt their play to the prevailing conditions. Stirling Albion have had a lean season and will be back in "B" Division next season. On form there should be only one possible result but form doesn't win games and the Dons will need to be incisive if they are to succeed even against lowly Albion.
