Match Report

Newspaper extract from The Courier.

Dundee faced driving rain and sleet in the first half of last night's friendly at Newcastle.

Opening play favoured the homesters. Brown saved well from Mitchell (ex-Third Lanark), then Walker got through, but was robbed by Boyd. Play was running for Newcastle, and in the 32nd minute Taylor gave Brown no chance with a knee-high shot.

Pattillo was the only Dundee forward to make an impression, but Cowie and Rattray worked hard in defence. On the resumption Dundee, with the wind behind them, at once came more into the game.

Gerrie put Pattillo through and Lowery saved brilliantly. After Brown had saved a shot from Walker, Gerrie scored with a low, hard shot to equalise.

Ewen now came strongly into the picture. In the 73rd minute he netted, but was given offside. Three minutes later Crowe handled in the box, and Ewen scored from the spot to put the Dens Parkers ahead.

Soon afterwards Follon made a bad pass back and Walker rushed in to get Newcastle's second goal.

Nine minutes from the end Dundee again took the lead. Gunn sent over a cross and Ewen rose to it and placed the ball in the net.

Brown, Boyd, Cowan, Pattillo and Ewen were Dundee's best. Gerrie was little in the game, and could not have impressed the managers watching him.
