Match Report


Newspaper extract from Aberdeen Press and Journal.

Former Scotland and current Leeds United player Peter Lorimer came home to his native Dundee last night to mark his testimonial year.

Nearly 8000 fans reaped the benefit as Lorimer's star studded select, including seven full internationals, created the best possible impression.

In fact, the only thing miss ng from the gala occasion was a goal from the man himself - although Lorimer tried hard enough.

The Dens Park public had a night to remember as the Select turned on all the guile and ability at their command. Let's not forget First Division Dundee's part in the occasion for they too undoubtedly reaped some benefit from the 90 minutes, during which time they took full advantage of the "friendly" tag to introduce several young and new faces to their fans.

Billy Bremner got the night's biggest ovation when, after a five-star performance, he was replaced during the second half by Johnston.

The opening goal came in 10 minutes from tall striker Rav HANKIN. A glorious 1-2 between Lorimer and Connolly left the big fellow with an easy task to net from six yards.

Two minutes later Dundee were back on terms. A neat Pirie slip gave SINCLAIR a scoring chance and at the second attempt he pushed the ball low past Thomson Allan, deputising for Leeds' injured international, Dave Stewart and David Harvey.

Things livened up again after the break when Billy PIRIE netted a brilliant solo effort in 49 minutes after a tremendous Scott pass had rifled through the Select defence.

Six minutes later it was all square again when Frank Gray and Arthur Graham contrived the opening on the left for HANKIN to net his second at the far post.

Then a corner on the right was nodded back by Hankin and GRAHAM raced in to sidefoot home the winner from eight yards with just two minutes remaining.
