Hamilton 'A's First Defeat

Aberdeen Reserves on Top at Pittodrie.


Hamilton A, playing throughout the whole of the second half with ten men, made a valiant but unavailing bid to retain their unbeaten Alliance League certificate at Pittodrie on Saturday.

Aberdeen had to fight every inch of the way for their narrow victory, though they had much more of the play in both periods than the score would suggest.
It was unfortunate that the visitors should lose their centre, Miller, who sustained a broken collar-bone when the first half was well advanced. Up till then the Young Dons had more than held their own, and subsequently, against a depleted side, they were complete masters of the situation, though persistently baulked by a stubborn defence.
The Accies twice took the lead in the course of a fast and interesting game. Within five minutes of the start Baillie beat Cumming with a great drive, but soon after Johnston headed the equaliser.

Homesters' Second "Shock."

Following severe Aberdeen pressure in the second half. Dulcie, who had moved to the injured Miller's place at centre, broke through again to put the visitors ahead.
The Young Dons went all out after this, and goals by Johnston and Armstrong made the points safe and inflicted on the plucky Accies their first defeat in the competition this season.
The homesters gave a convincing display right through. The defence was very confident, and all three half-backs gave a fine, forcing display. Johnston and Love were lively extreme wingers, and Armstrong was always "up."
Morgan, in goal; Baillie, half-back; and Thomson and Dulcie, forward, were best for the losers.
