Matchday Programme : 12/03/1969

A 5-star show from Newcastle

The match was played in an absolute blizzard! With snow and sleet driving across the ground the Setubal players would have been quite dismayed that the game went ahead in such conditions. It was so bad that the pitch was marked out in red!
