YoungGazza boss­es­game atPalmer­ston

Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - THE TICKET -

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.
