Young Dons Out

Fade Away After Good Start at Perth.

In this third round Scottish Second XI. Cup-tie at Muirton Park, Aberdeen "A" held their own until fifteen minutes after the start of the second half, when the Perth men took a grip of the game and finished good winners.

The Aberdeen defence was shaky under pressure, although Ritchie, the stop-gap goalkeeper, had some good saves to his credit.
The Young Dons' forwards were clever individualists, but they were not strong enough for the Perth defence, in which Jackson and Muir, two former Aberdeen players, were prominent. Conwell was a tricky inside forward, but he lacked support, while Adam was a danger to the Perth defence with his solo runs.

Devers' Great Goal.

End-to-end play ruled in the opening stages, and both defences were hard pressed, with the Saints more likely to score. This they did after seventeen minutes, when Duncan netted from close range.
The Young Dons were not slow to retaliate, and Devers brought the score level with a great left-foot shot just before the Interval.
Devers was hurt and went outside right after the interval.
The teams were evenly matched for a time after the resumption, but gradually the home lot got the upper hand. Donald fouled in the penalty area, but Priestley shot high over from the spot. It was all St Johnstone after this.
Stewart, who was ever dangerous at centre-forward, got two goals within three minutes and it was all over, the Young Dons retiring a well-beaten team.
