3rd March 1962 Celtic 2 Dundee 1 Lennox debut
At the end of February 1962, Celtic were lying in third place in the First Division table.
On this day in 1962, Celtic played host to league leaders Dundee and a good crowd of 39,000 was there to see the action. The reserve side was also in good form that season, with a young man from Saltcoats called Bobby Lennox doing particularly well. The managerial staff at Parkhead at that time must have had a lot of faith in him, as they brought him into the side to face Dundee, the players lining up with Frank Haffey in goal; Dunky McKay and Jim Kennedy the fullbacks; Pat Crerand, Billy McNeill and Billy Price at half-back; and Frank Brogan, Bobby Lennox, John Hughes, John Divers plus Bobby Carroll making up the forwards.
It was a strange afternoon for the home fans. After seeing their team out-played and 0-1 down with only ten minutes to go, they looked on with astonishment as Frank Brogan equalised in the 80th minute, then Billy McNeill scored the winner five minutes from time.
