Dundee were knocked out of the Scottish Cup in the 1st round during the 1961/62 season. This meant they had a couple of spare days in their calendar. To fill them, they arranged two friendlies with Arsenal, one away and one at home.
The programme above is from the first game at Highbury on 17th Feb 1962 - score 2-2.
The return match at Dens on the 10th of March was a 1-0 victory to the Gunners.
The games didn't have much of an impact on Dundee's season though as we went on to become Scottish Champions that year!!
Ian Ure, who played against Arsenal, ended up playing for the London club the following year.
