Luck With Partick A

How New Men Shaped in Pittodrie Alliance Game.

Aberdeen "A" were unfortunate to drop both points in their Alliance League fixture with the Partick reserves, which served as a "curtain-raiser" at Pittodrie. The homesters had the greater share of the play, but score they could not. With the end in sight G. Wyllie took Westland unawares, as the young 'keeper got down to a hard shot from the right, and deftly turned the ball into the net.
Even after this, with little time left, it looked as if the Young Dons would avert defeat, but faulty shooting nullified likely opportunities of equalising. Love did get the ball the net, but the point was disallowed for offside.
A crowd of round about 7000 was keenly interested in how the new men in the home side shaped. Westland in goal made good. Time and again he brought off difficult saves with the coolness of a veteran.
Devers and Conwell were the most potent factors in attack, though Adam was not far behind when it came to forcing the play. Nevertheless, the shooting of the home forwards was disappointing throughout. McGowan played a steady game at centre-half, and once he gets up a little more speed he should prove a rare acquisition.
Mackenzie, the young back from Brora, gave a wholehearted display. A tenacious tackier he cleared his lines with quick precision.
The visitors were well served in defence, Gourlay in goal and Murray at left back being outstanding. Baigrie, a Woodside product, shone in a steady half-back line, and the pick of a nippy forward line was G. Wylie, a centre-forward who should not be long in Alliance circles.
