Stonehaven 0 - 9 The Aberdeen
Kick Off:           
Attendance: 0
Venue: Glenury Park, Stonehaven
Played on Saturday afternoon at Urie, Stonehaven. The strangers played a dashing game, and carried the game in both periods, scoring 4 goals in the first and 5 in the second. The Stonehaven team repeatedly brought the ball down on their opponents' lines, but were never fortunate in getting through.

The Aberdeen sent out a scratch team to play the Stonehaven. The latter are as yet a little green in the dribbling game, but the result, nine to nil, scarcely gives a correct idea of the play, which was far from being one-sided. The goal-keeping of Wood for the strangers was a treat, and kept the Stonehaven time after time from scoring.
