10-Men Young Dons Could Not Finish

BEATEN 5-1 by Raith Rovers "A " at Stark's Park on Saturday, the Young Dons gave a better display than the score suggests.

They had only ten men in the second half. Jimmy Stenhouse, who received a thigh injury early in the game, was a cripple for the remainder of the first half and did not resume after the interval.
Even so, the Aberdeen forwards were causing plenty of trouble, and had their finishing been on a par with their outfield play, they might have put a different complexion on the result.
The Aberdeen wingers, Kiddie and Millar, both played well. Glen and Millar were particularly dangerous on the left.
Pacione was the better of the two backs.
Aberdeen's goal was scored by George Merchant. Murray (pen.), Joyner, Leigh, Mitchell and Junior scored for Raith Rovers.
