There was a very good turnout at the Inter-City match between Aberdeen and Dundee. Two ex-Aberdeen players in Merchant and Massie were playing for the visitors and both gave a good account of themselves. The second "leg" is on Monday week, the Dundee Autumn holiday. In the game last Monday the Dons played hard but probably because of over-eagerness they just hardly "clicked" as a team.
