On This Day

December 27th
1947
An unexpected victory
Sammy Scott (left) opens the scoring against Gateshead in our festive meeting in 1947. The victory, only the fourth that Fred Westgarth's men had managed in the league all season, was somewhat unexpected given that the Tynesiders had triumphed 7-0 in the reverse fixture just two days earlier.
