Reserve football used to get pretty decent crowds, but that was when games were played at weekends.  My dad used to go to Pittodrie every week, 1st team one week, the reserves the next.  Also seem to remember hearing there was one game (Joey Harper's return?) where the reserves actually pulled a bigger crowd at Pittodrie than the crowd that watched the first team where ever they were playing.

 

No chance of that now they play reserve games fucking miles from the "home" team's stadium, on a tue afternoon at 1pm.  Not much surprise they are scraping the league

as frustrating as smith is with injury's im glad he's clearly not being rushed.  Its getting to business end of the season and a fully fit smith would really sharpen our claws up front, lets hope he can get a good run under his belt.  reckon he'll make the bench for the killie game

Aberdeen Res 1-0 Falkirk Res Glebe Park 2.00pm kick off

Wright 75

 

A fine performance from Bertrand Bossu helped Aberdeen Reserves to a one nil victory over Falkirk at Glebe Park this afternoon. The big keeper had a string of fine saves in the closing stages to keep a clean sheet after the Dons had gone in front from a Tommy Wright header.

 

Jamie Smith looks to be on the road to recovery as he played the first 45 minutes as planned, before being replaced by Nicky Clark at half time.

 

Peter Pawlett looked impressive for the Dons and Duff, Wright, Young and Foster all had a comfortable 90 minutes.

If the reserve league is being scrapped then I would assume that our reserve team coach Sandy Clark will be getting released or will JC create another job for his old pal?
