STEVENSTON THISTLE v. KILBIRNIE
At Stevenston


A strong wind blew across the field, which interfered with the play. Kilbirnie had the wind in their favour in the first half, but did not score, though they were often before the Thistle goal. The home team made a good defence and scored 1 goal.

In the second half Kilbirnie scored two goals and Thistle added a second and equalised.

The game ended in a draw – 2 goals each.
