Aberdeen 'A' At Elgin
In an Aberdeenshire and District League match at Burroughbriggs, Aberdeen "A" dropped a point to Elgin City, six goals being divided. Munro early gave City the lead, but Wilkinson promptly equalised. Ten minutes later, following a corner, Munro again put the City ahead. Aberdeen attacked vigorously for a time, and ultimately, in a scrimmage, Ritchie secured the equaliser, and before the interval Wilkinson gave the Pittodrie team the lead with a headed effort. In a closely contested second half, Munro put the City on level terms from the penalty spot, and there was no further scoring.
