Fairs Cup Final 1st Leg 29 May 1969

Newcastle 3 Ujpesti Dozsa  0

Moncur (63,71), Scott (84)

Crowd: 59,234

Only eight days after completing the semi-final success against Rangers, Newcastle United were back at St James Park to face Ujpest Dozsa in the first leg of the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup Final.

The Hungarian opposition were one of Europe’s top teams at the time and after an hour the game was still without a goal.

However, Bobby Moncur chose this match to score his first ever senior goal for Newcastle…and then he added a second!

Jimmy Scott added a third and perfectly set United up for what would prove to be an eventful second leg in Budapest…

Newcastle United: McFaul, Craig, Clark, Gibb, Burton, Moncur, Scott, Robson, Davies, Arentoft, Sinclair (Foggon 75)
