Scottish League 'C' Division
Aberdeen scorers: Pearson, Clelland, Anderson.

21/02/1953 | KO: 15:00

Half-Backs Have A Bright Day

Strength at half-back gave Aberdeen "A" a smart 3-1 win at Dunfermline, where the home reserves failed to profit from two penalty kicks in the second half.
Two more Points and the Pittodrie team can be acclaimed as "C" Division champions.
Anderson and Wallace were both good in Aberdeen's halfback line, and Walker again impressed at back.
Pearson, Clelland and Boyd were the pick of the Aberdeen forwards, and the first-named pair both scored. The third and decisive goal was scored by Anderson, to complete a good day's work.
