Wednesday 7 January 1970 – Southampton and Arsenal Out of Fairs Cup


Fairs Cup – Round 3 – 2nd Leg

Southampton     1

Newcastle           1

(Agg   1-4)


Arsenal       2

Rouen        2

(Agg   2-4)


Newcastle United were in total control of the tie and their reward is a quarter final against crack Belgian side Anderlecht in March. They remain the only English club in the competition.

Arsenal were two goals up  and set to progress. Two late Rouen goals took the tie for the French side which surprised everyone.

Rouen face Romanian Dinamo Buchau.
