Alliance Game At Pittodrie

Aberdeen Whack Beith.

Aberdeen won their Alliance League fixture against Beith at Pittodrie even more easily than the score indicates. Despite this, however, as a combination the young Dons did not impress.
Their attack lacked cohesion, and the marksmanship of the forwards was a very poor standard.
Armstrong was most prominent in attack. His partner did not meet with success, but he was a trier, and the shouts and jeers of the crowd were uncalled for and showed a distinct lack of sportsmanship.
Yorston has played much better. Devlin at inside-right was a very fine ball manipulator, but was too slow to part, and was injured in the second half and had to go to outside-left.
Allan, the right-wing "flier," showed promise. His centres were excellently placed, and he could shoot, although he was a trifle on the slow side.

Hill Outstanding.

Hill once again was the outstanding half and the best player on the field. McLaren and Fraser were both sound, and Aberdeen had nothing to complain about in this department.
Legge was the better of the two backs.
Beith were very plucky, but were inferior to the home team and were well held, except for occasional breakaways. The visitors were best served in defence by Johnston (J.) and Narrowmore, and in attack by Crawford, McInnes, and Bell (J-).
Aberdeen got a fright at the start when Crawford gave the visitors the lead, but quickly recovered, and goals by Allan, David, and Armstrong and Yorston gave them a substantial interval lead of 4-1.
Aberdeen were even more predominant in the second period, but counted only once through Yorston.
