Norwich City 1 - 0 Aberdeen
Kick Off:  7:15 PM   Gavin        
Attendance: 16,519
Venue: Carrow Road, Norwich
The Dons had the doubtful distinction of being the first club to lose to Norwich City in a floodlight friendly. Aberdeen had the edge in the first half but just couldn't score, and the home side won with a late goal after exerting great pressure in the second half.
