Victory For Aberdeen 'A'
Aberdeen "A" defeated Falkirk A by 4 goals to 2 in a Sottish Alliance match. The winners had much the better of the exchanges, and it was due to mistakes that the visitors got two goals near the end of the game. Miller and Mutch each scored twice for the home team, who revealed much cleverness in attack, Thomson, Miller, and Connon showing to advantage. Gourlay and Marshall were the scorers for Falkirk "A." There were 5000 spectators.
