A rare wee souvenir from '68, although it be a bit tatty now.
The Fairs Cup was a kind of precursor to the present UEFA Cup, and this Elland Road game was the 2nd leg of the semi-final. The 1st leg at Dens Park ended 1-1. This return match in Leeds was Dundee's very last game of the season, but unfortunately we lost it 1-0. Leeds, whos team consisted of legends like Bremner, Lorimer, Giles & Hunt, went on to lift the trophy.

I was there. A young laddie who told his mum and dad he was staying with a mate and travelled down by bus with the Dee Club. Great couple of days and I was looked after really well by some of the older guys on the bus. Guess that's why I am still a serious Dark Blue today!
