Newspaper extract from The Courier.
This friendly was played at Carolina Port before 3000 spectators. Both teams had made changes in their ranks.
Teams:- Dundee - Barrett: Darroch and Campbell : MhGee, Longair, and Keiller; Thomson, McInroy, Sawers, Stevenson, and Fleming.
Wanderers - Arnott; Murray and McDermid; McIntosh, Crawford, and Fleming: Cust. Graham, Bryan, Craik, and Abbot.
Dundee kicked off towards the east goal, and after some smart returns in midfield the Wanderers got west, but the ball was sent behind.
Dundee secured the ball from the kick-off, and were soon surrounding Arnott. The Far City man, however, displayed excellent resource, and the Wanderers gradually got west .Barrett kicked out, but the ball was again sent in, and, Cust placing well to Graham, that player headed through about ten miuntes from the start.
Play afterwards was equal. Runs from goal to goal were numerous, the forward on both sides lacking shooting powers. A corner was awarded to each side. These, however, were cleared. Although both goalkeepers were called upon, no further scoring took place, half- time ending in favour of the Wanderers.
The score at half-time was - Wanderers, 1 goal; Dundee, nil.
On resuming, the Dundee attacked the Wanderers goal, and McIntosh granted a corner. The ball was finely placed, and caused the visitors defence some anxiety. The danger was, however, averted, and the Wanderers got east, but the ball was sent behind.
Shady tactics were now indulged in, and fouls were granted against both sides.
The Wanderers invaded, and the Dundee goal had some narrow escapes.
Time was wearing on, and with only ten minutes to go nothing as yet had been done by either side. A foul close in was granted Dundee, but this was quickly cleared, as well as two corners, which followed immediately after.
Dindee kept up a steady siege, and the ball being put well in Sawers, who was lying handy, placed matters level with a swift shot.
The Dundee, at once resumed the aggressive, and wera successful in annexing two corners. There were cleared, and shortly after. wards time was ruled, and a game in which neither side gained the ascendancy, or even showed the finer points of play, ended in a draw of 1 goal.
No league table has been added for this season.
