Match Report


Newspaper extract from The Courier | Ref. BNA (www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk); The British Library Board | Copyright Statement - .

A match for the family of the late Mr Niven, shipwright, belonging to Dundee, who died at Calcutta shortly after the New Year, was played at Carolina Port last night between the Dundee Football Club and the Dundee Wanderers.

There was a large attendance.

The teams were:- Dundee - Hillman; Kelso and Hamilton; Hall, McArthur, and Stormont; Smith, Willocks, Devlin, Clark, and Allan.

Wanderers:- Stewart; McQuade and Irons; McColl, Ireland, and Betsworth: Ford, Graham, Aimers, Peat, and Storrier.

Referee, Mr John Cameron, Our Boys.

Wanderers kicked off, and were quickly at the Dundee goal. The ball, however, was sent back, and Allan, for Dundee, notched first point.

Give and-take play followed. Dundee forced the Wanderers to concede several corners, but these, although well placed, were fruitless. Wanderers pressed again and again, but were unable to score, Hillman saving some well-directed shots.

There was no further scoring in the first half.

On crossing over Dundee kept up a pressure on their opponents' goal, but could not manage to score. The Wanderers also made several attempts to count, and a few minutes before time was called scored from a scrimmage, which resulted when Hillman rushed out of his charge to try and get the ball.

There was nothing further done, and the game resulted in a draw-1 goal each.

The drawings from the match amounted to £7 16s 8d.
