- Friendly match played at Celtic Park.
- Before 3,000 spectators.
- McKeown and McCallum were away playing for Glasgow in a match against East of Scotland.
- McLaren was also missing.
ReviewIn conjunction with the Cross County Championship, the ground club were without McKeown, McLaren, and McCallum, and Reynolds of Carfin, and Clark, of the Hibernians, assisted. The Harriers' team was weakened by the Inter-City and other important contests. The game was splendidly contested and sustained with vigour to the close. The Celtic showed the way, but Chalmers saved splendidly. At half-time no goals had been scored, but on crossing over the Clydesdale came away brilliantly. McGregor, Hector, and McKenzie each scored, and the game ended in defeat of the Celtic by 3 goals to 0.
John Kelly, Dowling, Reynolds (of Carfin), Jas Kelly, Gallagher, Dowds, Coleman, Dunbar, Groves, Clarke (of Hibernian), T Maley.

From newspaper reports from the timeThere was a large gathering of spectators at Celtic Park to witness the football match between the Celts and the Clydesdale Harriers, in connection with the Harriers championships.
The Celts, who played a scratch team, were defeated, although in the first half they had the most of the play. The feature of the match was the splendid goalkeeping of Chalmers of the Clyde.
