Aberdeen Draw At Hamilton

Stern Fight in the Shield.


An Aberdeen side with a goodly sprinkling of first team players earned a draw in the Alliance Shield at Douglas Park, Hamilton, last night.

Hamilton Acas. had the better of the opening exchanges, but bad finishing spoiled their best chances. Allan, the Hamilton inside-right, was injured and retired, but despite the home side's handicap play continued to hover around the visitors' goal area.
The return of Allan saw a reshuffle in the Hamilton front rank, Allan going to outside-left, Wilson to centre, and Crawley to inside-right.

Lead from Mills.

Twenty-five minutes after the start Mills put the visitors ahead from a cross from the right.
The Acas. made strong but unavailing efforts to score. Five minutes after the resumption Allan retired to the pavilion.
Hamilton's ten men strove valiantly, and after D. Wilson had missed an open goal they deservedly equalised.
Wilson was the actual scorer, but it was a deft turn in by Graham that made the goal possible.
Aberdeen next attacked, and Morgan was warmly applauded for turning out a grand try from Johnston, while on another occasion Robertson headed narrowly over.

Woodwork Helps Smith.

At the other end the crossbar kept out a scoring shot from Park. Both teams strove hard for the winner in the closing quarter hour, and in the last few minutes Park headed narrowly past the Aberdeen goal.
Aberdeen A play Kilmarnock A at Rugby Park to-day, their closing engagement in the Alliance League, of which they are already champions.
