Dons In Silver Show

The Aberdeenshire Cup was placed among the Pittodrie collection of trophies last Wednesday after the 2-1 home win over Peterhead. An early goal by Neil Simpson and another from Lee Gardner, one of the game's big successes, provided a half-time lead which Peterhead could not pull back.
Dons field a strong team including the captain Alex McLeish, Willie Falconer, Ian Porteous, Brian Grant, Paul Wright and Simpson. Two other resounding victories in the space of three days was ample proof recently that the Reserves are none the poorer for their lean spell of fixtures in the early weeks of 1988. First there was a 6-0 Premier Reserve League win over St Mirren at Pittodrie followed on the Monday by a 2-0 victory over Hibs at Easter Road in the Second XI Cup. In both of these games Neil Simpson was showing his paces after injury and very well he did, too. He scored two of the six goals on the Saturday and gave an encouraging contribution to the Cup win when Paul Wright scored both goals. Wright also scored, from the penalty spot, in the six-goal romp.
