The wild conditions experienced in Aberdeen last Wednesday weren't confined to the North and the game against Queens Park was played in a gale, "the Hampden "Swirl" was more difficult to master than the "Spiders"! It wasn't a classic but the Dons were easy winners. Few Glaswegians came to the game - one couldn't blame them under the conditions! The crowd would have been thought poor for a Pittodrie Reserve Match.
