Last updated : 16 July 2009 By Stand Free Ed

ABERDEEN'S exciting youngsters made up for their 2-0 weekend defeat to Cove Rangers with an impressive 4-1 victory at the home of new Highland League side Turriff United.

The young Dons got off to the perfect start in the opening minute when Callum McRobbie set up Nicky Clark to score with a good finish.

Aberdeen added to the scoreline in the 27 minute when Mitch Megginson was brought down in the box; the striker getting up to score from the spot.

Turriff United fought back after going two down, with Noble scoring on 33 minutes. After that the home side had only two other clear chances but young Dons keeper Scott Bain saved well on both occasions.

On 62 minutes, youth coach Neil Cooper brought on Jamie Masson, Conor Deveney and Nico Gibson, and six minutes later two of the subs combined to put the Dons 3-1 up. From a corner Masson flicked it on and Gibson powered in an excellent header.

Jordon Brown and exciting prospect Jack Grimmer were next to come on. Grimmer, who had smashed a shot against the crossbar on Saturday against the Highland League champions, passed up a chance to score his first goal for Aberdeen yesterday when he missed a penalty only two minutes after coming on.

However the impressive young striker did get a deserved goal in the final minute. After good pressing from the Dons on the right hand side of the field, the ball fell to Grimmer on the edge of the box and he crashed a superb shot in off the post.

Team: Bain, Jarvis, Robertson (Brown 72), Fyvie, Dunlop, Shaunessy, Clark (Masson 62), Hansson, McRobbie (Gibson 62), Megginson (Grimmer 72), Low (Devaney 62)
