In our 120th Anniversary Season, Dundee Football Club are delighted to announce an event to commemorate the 40th Anniversary of the League Cup victory over Celtic in 1973.



The dinner will take place exactly 40 years to the day - December 15th - in The Invercarse Hotel, Dundee. 1973 brought Dundee's last major trophy when captain Tommy Gemmell lifted the League Cup after Gordon Wallace's winner had beaten Celtic 1-0 at Hampden. Both would later go on to manage the Club.    Chesting down a Bobby Wilson free-kick with his back to the goal, almost all in the one movement 'Stubby' turned before firing the ball past the desperately diving Ally Hunter for one of the best goals ever seen in a Hampden Cup Final.   "As the years go by, we recognise more and more how important it is to mark these events and ensure these Legends of this historic Club are given the proper recognition they deserve. These players play an important role in our Football Club, linking what we've achieved and what we want to aspire to" said Chief Executive Scot Gardiner. "There will be plenty of supporters who can remember that team, or indeed travelled through to Hampden that day to witness David White's men lift the trophy. This will be a warm, thoroughly enjoyable night where we'll have the wonderful opportunity of hearing first hand from the players who played that day their memories of bringing a major trophy back to Dens Park"
