These teams met in a friendly fixture on Saturday before a large turnout of spectators at Wellington Grounds.

Victoria United: Gray; Ririe, Anderson; Morrice, Dickie, Ross; Turner, Benzie, Sutherland, McFarlane, Annand.

The game was fast and exciting throughout, both teams playing good football. The locals opened the scoring, but they didn't keep the lead long, for the Boys quickly made matters equal. First half ended: Victoria, 3; Our boys, 3. The second half was exceedingly fast, but the locals always managed to keep the lead towards the finish, and scored five goals in quick succession, the Boys only scoring one. A fast and exciting game ended: Victoria United, 7; Our Boys, 4.
