Manager's Programme Notes

We welcome our supporters back to Dens Park at the start of a new season, full of hope and expectation after regaining a position in the Premier League. It is ironic we welcome for our first game one of our closest competitors last year, Raith Rovers, who, I am sure, will be fighting for honours in the First Division this season again. We wish the Kirkcaldy side well in their bid to gain promotion this time.

The beginning of a season is always full of hope and expectation, and this season it is even more so at Dens Park. No-one at Dundee Football Club is kidding himself that this will be an easy season but we are very hopeful after all the hard work that has been put in during the close season, both to strengthen the team and try to improve all the players on the staff to meet. Premier League standards.

Our League Cup section is a very interesting one and hopefully we can learn a great deal from it. Apart from Raith we have Rangers, Scottish Cup winners last season, and Morton, and established Premier League side.

We welcome new players to our staff and hope they will strengthen our first team squad. We also welcome our new first team coach, Ken Wimhurst, who takes over from Frank Upton who has departed for Kuwait. I worked. with Ken at Bristol City for several years and I know he will do a very good job for Dundee and his experience will be priceless to the club.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank our loyal supporters who have stood by us through good times and bad times. We hope we can give you all something to cheer about in season 1981-82.
