Bobby Moncur proved to be the hero of the day with two goals, the forst from a Wyn Davies rebound which fell nicely for him to prod into the net with hiz left peg @ The Gallowgate End.  

His 2nd came just a few minutes later with anothaa 'left footer' to put us two-nowt up! (Amazingly, Moncur waz right footed and had NEVER scored in a competitive game before!---his 143rd for the club!)

Jimmy Scott completed the victory when he fired in from a Benny Arentoft pass! (aall the goals were scored in the 2nd half @ The Gallowgate End!) (little ol' schoolboy 'Fink' waz in The Leazes End on that memorable neet in '69'!)
