Chatty Bits.There Was a broad three foot smile on the Pittodrie directors' faces on Saturday after the match. The number of enquiries I heard made as to who were signed-on was something awful. There was a whisper that others are signed-on outside the present team. Their names will only be known once the season is closed. This may be true and it may not. The directors are not to be drawn meantime as to what has and what has not been done. They seem to be angry when you make suggestions. The Press Match, was a great affair on Friday night at Pittodrie. It was an eye-opener to at least two of the combatants. A midget goalkeeper, with a pair of good backs, and a scoring outside right, let the Union Street men get the victory. There were sore bones on Saturday, and I learn that some of the pressmen were quite unfit for walking exercise, let alone anything else. The game was contested in fine spirit all through, and let these pencillers into a few of the secrets of bow to "shoot wildly over the bar." Harry Rennie thought the game on Saturday one of the best he has seen this season. What an improvement there was in the front line of the Aberdeen; hardly a pass went a-begging, every one seemed to be in his propter place. Henry Low made his best appearance as a centre and was voted a success. A great improvement has come over Willox. If he can keep up Saturday's form he ought to be played regularly. There was a grand cricket match at Pittodrie last Friday, when the Aberdeen footballers beat a cricket team from the Scottish Rifles. Johnny Edgar carried off the honours in batting, and Halket in bowling, while Ward proved an excellent, man behind the stumps. Dorkins disappointed Aberdeen on Monday, and Сruickshank had to fall into the front line. Edgar is the handy man just now, and seems equally at home on the left and at inside. With the "nerves" once worked off, Fordyce gave every promise of turning out a good custodian. Tom Robertson had to keep a firm grip of the game on Monday. Still there were several nasty incidents that could have been avoided.
