This programme was for the Quarter Final of the Fairs Cup. Zurich were no pushovers, having beat Barcelona and Sporting Lisbon to reach this stage. Dundee, however, managed to beat them home and away, with this 1st leg tie at Dens on 27th March 1968 finishing 1-0, a goal by Jim Easton. We also won the 2nd leg in Switzerland by the same margin, with Sammy Wilson getting the winner.

This game marked a turning point in my life - Bobby Wilson at right back was defending a free-kick over which the Zurich left winger was taking a long time. Feeling somewhat exasperated, Bobby Wilson shouted 'come on, kick the f**king baw' !

I was the tender age on 10 years and 11 months I heard a footballer swear ! My life has never been the same since !

Thanks for the memory !
