Nine Goals At Banff
Goals were plentiful at Banff, where in an Aberdeenshire and District game Aberdeen reserves defeated the home team by 6 goals 3. Scott early counted for Banff, but the lead was short lived. Forbes heading through the equaliser. Aberdeen took the game in hand, and Connon and Mutch each scored, but Rogers got through to give Banff a second goal. Near the interval Forbes added another for the Pittodrie team, who led at half time by 4-2. Shortly after resuming the visitors obtained a fifth goal through Spalding, and later Mutch scored a sixth. In the later stares Banff were handicapped by the absence of Robb, who was injured, and had to be taken off, but they played very pluckily, and Rogers obtained a third goal for them.
