Tyrone Shoelaces Posted June 14, 2009 Share Posted June 14, 2009 It was before the Hunter Bremner time and it happened just in front of the players tunnel!! Leeds played on Blue nd Yellow that day (yellow shirts with Blue sleeves!! I think I didn't realise we were going back that far. According to Mike Hickmans " Blackburn Rovers a Complete History" Rovers played Leeds United at Ewood on the 22nd of November 1958, losing 4-2. Duggie played that day on the right wing. His next game was against Burnley at Ewood in the F.A.Cup on January 28th 1959. So he was out for over two months following that Leeds game. Did the Leeds player got a severe letting off or even a booking ? I bet he didn't get the early bath. Funnily enough Duggie played every game after the Burnley cup tie onwards until the return game with Leeds at Elland Road when he didn't play. He also missed the remaining 4 games of that season. Team for the Leeds game at Ewood ------- Jones Taylor Eckersley Clayton Woods McGrath Douglas Dobing Johnson Vernon McCleod Scorers McCleod, Vernon.
