Young Dons Merited Their Win

THERE was no doubting the young Dons' superiority over Hearts "A" at Pittodrie on Saturday.

They won as easily as the 5-0 score suggests, and got sweet revenge for a 4-1 beating by the Tynecastle side a fortnight ago.
Hearts had themselves to blame. They played pretty football in the outfield, but none of their attempts at goal carried danger.
The young Dons, after a spell of ineffectiveness, went from strength to strength and merited their 2-0 interval lead.
In a late "mad" spell they scored three times in eight minutes.
Kenny Thomson was a tower of strength in the Aberdeen defence and Curran was safe.
Pearson and Glen early struck up a tricky partnership on the lef wing. Pearson, however, was inclined to be more elaborate thar effective.
Durkin was Hearts' most persistent raider.
