On This Day: 31 January

1962: Having drawn 2-2 at Clyde four days earlier, Aberdeen destroy their Rutherglen opponents by a whopping 10 goals to three at Pittodrie. Bobby Cummings gets five in what is one of Aberdeen's highest ever scorelines.

Not a new thing having problems breaking teams down:

On this day:

1920: For the only time in their history, Aberdeen host Gala Fairydean for a Scottish Cup tie, winning 2-0 in front of 15,000.

Quote
Gala Fairydean's Account of the Match

A Day Trip to Pittodrie

Having qualified for the main draw in the Scottish Cup in 1914, Gala Fairydean had to wait until 1920 to play their opponents. The wait was ultimately worth it when they were drawn at home to the mighty Aberdeen in the second round at windswept Mossilee, where they were based at that time. The club took the pragmatic approach of conceding home advantage in favour of gate receipts and travelled to the Granite City to face their lofty opponents.

The Fairydean side was D. Nicol, Mabon, Richardson, Borthwick, Frame, Mercer, Wilson, Eckford, Forrest, Sinclair and Heard but within minutes of the kick off they were reduced to ten men when goalkeeper Nicol was injured in a collision with Aberdeen's Wyllie and had to leave the field. Indeed the injury was so serious that Nicol did not play again that season. Forrest went between the posts and was faced with an Aberdeen onslaught although they were inclined to be a bit too fancy and found it hard to score or even get a shot on goal. It took Fairydean twenty minutes to break into Aberdeen territory such was the home side's superiority. Frame played a magnificent game in defence and as a result of his and the rest of the teams' efforts the score was amazingly goalless at half time.

The situation remained the same at the start of the second period with the Aberdeen attackers unable to break down the resistance of the heroic ten man Fairydean team. After ten minutes the Aberdeen half backs lost patience with their forwards and took a hand in proceedings and it was Wright who sent in a fast ground shot that gave stand in keeper Forrest, no chance.

Aberdeen continued to hold the upper hand and although leading could not subdue the Fairydean team that played a terrific defensive game and cleared their lines again and again. Forrest, the stand in goalkeeper, made some remarkable saves and was cheered by the home fans as his antics provided much amusement. Playing almost the entire match with only ten men it was not surprising that the Fairydean players eventually began to tire but the Aberdeen forwards continued to squander chance after chance. The Fairydean forwards made the occasional break away but were never of any danger to the home goal.

With only a few minutes remaining Conon, who had taken up a central position, scored a fine goal for the home side who although victorious were never able to truly subdue the heroic ten men from the Borders. This was the Fairydean's first foray into the main draw of the Scottish Cup producing an astounding display and a creditable result but this was only the first of many ventures into this great cup competition.

Interesting selection of teams we've played on the 7th Feb:

Nithsdale wanderers is the team that fairly jumps out, back in existence playing in the South of Scotland league.

It's not about escaping. It's about getting out with a bit of dignity.

Scunthorpe United

From memory, he was doing quite well for Boro until he got an injury. TF will be able to confirm.
