Aberdeen faced off against Huddersfield Town in a brand new youth initiative and it was a great day for the young Dons.
Goals from Bruce Anderson, Ethan Ross and Chris Antoniazzi sealed a decent 3-0 win for the Red Army youngsters.
It’s the start of a new series of friendly games that will see Aberdeen face Hibs, Celtic, Rangers and Brentford, as well as the Terriers in an away match.
Huddersfield didn’t pose a threat to Aberdeen
The rules of the competiton are that it can only be players under 21 who feature, although the rules allow four overage players, including a goalkeeper, to participate.
The Dons fielded quiet a strong reserve side against the Terriers, who opted to use their U19s.
It didn’t prove to be much of a challenge, with the home side always looking the more likely to come out on top, based on the quality of opposition.
Overall it should be a good learning curve for them. The Dons clearly didn’t see the Reserve League as much use to their young players’ development. Hopefully this allows them to progress further.
They may have been playing a very young Terriers side, but Aberdeen have started this series in style.
