    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

England were three goals clear in fifteen minutes, and skated to an easy victory on a treacherous, snow-carpeted pitch. The match was played to celebrate the Centenary of the Scottish Football Association, but England - with Bobby Moore making his one hundredth appearance - wrecked the party. It was a nightmare start to Willie Ormond's job as new Scottish manager, following in the shoes of Tommy Docherty who had taken on the challenge of managing Manchester United. 'England hit the High Cs' was the tabloid headlines as Allan Clarke (2), former Southampton side-kicks Mike Channon and Martin Chivers shared the goals, and they were further helped by an own goal from Peter Lorimer on what was a totally embarrassing night for the Scots.
