The return friendly between these elevens took place on Saturday at Carolina Port in beautiful weather, and before a large crowd of spectators.

Teams:- East Stirlingshire - Kennedy, Johnstone, McKinnie, McCall, Hastings, Steel, Fish, McDonald, Alexander, McIntyre, McDonald.

Dundee:- Barrett, Darroch, Campbell, F. Ferrier, Longair, Keillor, Richardson, Maxwell, Logan, Lonie, Gilligan.

The home men set the ball moving, and Alexander got on the ball, but Longair was watching, and brought him up. Dundee's centre forwards, it was expected, would test Kennedy, but it was some time before they got his length. He had then, however, to hold some stinging shots from Lonie, Logan, and Maxwell.

Breaking away, the strangers came down, and Ferrier, the outside left, sent the ball into Barrett's hands. Logan, who was slightly better than he was the last time he appeared, slipped the ball to Richardson, but Kennedy saved brilliantly, and he was finely assisted by Johnstone and McKinnie.

The first half ended in neither side having scored.

The second half opened in spirited fashion. Alexander was playing in fine style, and passed the ball out to Fish, who sped on to Barrett. Nothing came from the run, and Keillor giving the ball to Gilligan, who was in improved form, the latter smartly put the ball into the net amidst cheers.

The Dundee now kept the upper hand, and Lonie and Logan carried the ball up to Johnston, and cleverly passing to Maxwell that player beat Kennedy for the second time.

Having now got the road to Kennedy's goal, the home forwards beat down all opposition, and Maxwell, who was in splendid shooting form, put his team three up.

A fast and exciting game ended in favour of Dundee by 3 goals to 0.
