Danny At The Double
Our Reserves travelled to Dens Park a week past Thursday to play Dundee in the first leg of the Reserve League Cup, and in an exciting game we won 2-0. Both our goals being scored in identical fashion by one of our new¬comers Danny McGeogh. Ian Fleming nodding on the ball from crosses from the wings and Danny putting the ball past the keeper also with his head. We did not have a failure in our team, with John Gardiner, Alec McLeish and Gordon Strachan just ahead of the rest.
