Signing himself only as ‘An Avid Dundee Supporter’, a BwB reader wasn’t very happy with recent coverage in a Sunday newspaper.
He didn’t say which Sunday newspaper it was but was unhappy at their reference to Scottish clubs scoring 10 goals in a game.
Again, he didn’t say why this particular subject came up, so I’m assuming it was in reference to Hamilton Accies’ 10-2 blitz of Morton on the final day of this year’s Scottish Championship season.
He argued: “Why was there no mention of Dundee FC scoring 10 goals away to Alloa, followed by a 10-0 success at home to Dunfermline two weeks later.
“It beggars belief that this was not mentioned especially as the great ‘Julie’ Albert Juliussen scored an amazing 13 goals in the two matches!”
Although the games were two weeks apart in March 1947, they were actually successive games as Dundee didn’t play a match inbetween.
Juliussen scored six against Alloa on March 6, with the others coming from Gunn, Rattray, Smith and Ewen.
The next outing saw him nab seven against Dunfermline at Dens on March 20, with Rattray and Ewen (2, 1 pen) also netting.
Dundee topped the B Division that year with a for and against of 113-30.
Juliussen was joint top scorer that season with Ernie Ewen on 33 goals, despite playing 12 games less than his team-mate.
