United were a little unlucky to lose this keenly contested friendly against Premier League promotion contenders Arniston. After goals from Aaron GOWANS and Andy McQUILLAN in the first half hour, had Danny Campbell's shot that hit the bar a few minutes into the second half been six inches lower then a 3-0 lead would probably have been unassailable. McQuillan too was unlucky with a shot that hit the post at 2-2. However, the loss of  centre-half John Drummond to injury just before the interval proved just too much to overcome with the visitors netting a last minute winner.

Blackburn United line-up: King (G.McQuillan 45), Williamson, Lawrie, Herriot, Drummond (Mildren 40), Spence (Fleming 50), Gowans, Young, McQuillan, Campbell, Marshall (Easton 52)
