APJ 16/9/1946. McINTOSH, YOUNGER, McGEACHY. Line-up as yet unsourced.
Thistle fell behind (4) but McIntosh equalised. Aberdeen were always that bit more likely and they scored twice before half-time. The Dons seemed to take things too easily in the second half and Younger and McGeachy scored only for Aberdeen to grab the winner (80).

MT 15/11/1946. Steadward, Jackson, Gibb, Hewitt, McGraw, Richmond, MacIntosh, Wilson, Gourlay, O'DONNELL, McGEACHY.
Motherwell deserved their half-time lead but they fell out of the game against the wind in the 2nd half. Their keeper kept Thistle out with three excellent saves but O'Donnell scored on the hour and McGeachy scored the winner (75).
21. Sat-16-Nov-1946 [a] D1-1 Celtic (Scottish Reserve League)
SP 17/11/1946. Line-up and scorer as yet unsourced.

FH 4/12/1946. Steadward, Pirrie, Gibb, Davidson, McGowan, Richmond, MacIntosh, Wright, Black, McInnes, Smith.
On a glue-pot surface Falkirk took the lead (16) and were never in trouble after that. It was 2-0 (39) and 3-0 (42). In the second half a fourth goal then a penalty (hat-trick for their No 9) rounded off a miserable day.
24. Sat-07-Dec-1946 [h] W5-1 Hamilton Academical (Scottish Reserve League)
SP 8/12/1946. Line-up and scorers as yet unsourced.

GH 30/12/1946 & DGS 1/1/1947. Steadward, Pirrie, Gibb, McGowan, McGraw, Richmond, McIntosh, Davidson, Candlin, McGeachy, Smith.
28. Sat-04-Jan-1947 [a] L1-3 Aberdeen (Scottish Reserve League)
APJ 4/1/1947. (Predicted) "Junior", Pirrie, Gibb, "Junior" McGRAW, Richmond, McIntosh, Bowie, YOUNGER, Scott, McGeachy.
Aberdeen's new South African signings Botha and Preston made an impact. A brilliant driving run was finished off for 1-0 then Botha was brought down and the pen made it 2-0. Younger pulled one back but a header from a Botha corner restored the 2-goal lead.
29. Sat-18-Jan-1947 [h] D4-4 St Mirren (Scottish Reserve League)
GH 20/1/1947. Line-up and scorers as yet unsourced.

FH 23/4/1947. Ledgerwood, Pirrie, Gibb, Davidson, Forsyth, CANDLIN (2), McIntosh, "Newman", Fulton, Scott, Smith.
The better side, Thistle were good value for the win. Candlin scored (1) then got his second at a corner on the half hour. He could have had a first half hat-trick but headed over a minute later. The second half was even but uneventful.
37. Sat-26-Apr-1947 [h] W2-0 Motherwell (Scottish Reserve League)
