HT Score: Aberdeen 1 - 0 British Army XI

Aberdeen scorers: Wishart 43.
British Army XI scorers: Hitchens 84, Wilson 87.

22/09/1958 | KO: 15:00

The Dons didn't do well in their dis­play against the Army last Monday. On play, they should have had a convincing lead, but instead they seemed to be con­tent with their solitary goal, frittered away chance after chance and in the end were shocked by the late goals that gave the soldiers victory — a win they could hardly have expected on play. Our lads must develop that "killer" complex — their sole aim must be to get goals and still more goals.
