YoungGazza bossesgame atPalmerston
Mirandinha magic never manifested itself at chilly Palmerston Park but who cared? Newcastle United had plenty of other tricks up their sleeve.
Sorcerer-in-chief was the man with an enchanted right foot, striker Paul Goddard. The former darling of Upton Park hit two of the best goals seen at Palmerston for years.
But if Goddard’s wizardry signalled the downfall of Queens, the architect of the crash was the sorcerer’s apprentice, a young Paul Gascoigne.
It had been a long time since a single player so dominated a game at the Dumfries ground. He simply shrugged off everything Queens put his way.
Final score: Queen of the South 0 Newcastle United 4.
