Liverpool to meet Dundalk in the Fair Cup

Wednesday, June 11 – 1969
Tradition triumphed yesterday in the Fairs Cup vote that sends Southampton into Europe for the first time and leaves Chelsea out in the cold. A proposal to allow more than one team from each city to compete this coming season was beaten off at the Fair Cup meeting in Budapest.

Places for Liverpool, second in the First Division, and Arsenal, fourth were guaranteed. But he decision to stick with tradition meant Southampton, seventh and Newcastle, ninth, got in above Everton, third, and Chelsea, fifth.

Southampton kick-off against Norway’s Rosenborg, Trondheim, who are coached by former Southampton player George Curtis. Arsenal have an easy enough start – against Irish club Glentoran, Liverpool meet Dundalk, and Newcastle clash with Dundee United.
