The teams met again, on 22nd September, 1925, but this time at Broomfield. The Diamonds won again, by 2-1, with Murdoch & Gallacher scoring. That match was a benefit game for Willie Neil.
Not a bad wee double for the Diamonds!
Apparently United played twice in Scotland within two days having played Aberdeen the day before the Airdrie match. This was in Bert MacLachlan's Benefit match.
I don't know the details or results of that match.
