On This Day – Ted MacDougall Scores Nine

20-11-1971: Bournemouth striker Ted MacDougall scored nine goals against Margate in the first round of the FA Cup. This is a record for the FA Cup proper. MacDougall scored five in the first half. The Cherries won the match 11-0.

Scottish MacDougall began his career at Liverpool but made only one first team appearance as a substitute in a UEFA match. He moved from Bournemouth to Manchester United for £200,000 in 1972. He scored five goals in 18 appearances – including a goal on his debut – before he moved to West Ham. He had a similar record at West Ham (5 goals in 24 appearances) and moved on to Norwich.

At both Norwich and Southampton he averaged a goal every two games – 51 goals in 112 appearances at Norwich and 42 goals in 86 games at Southampton.

MacDougall was the First Division top scorer with 23 goals in 1975-76. He teamed up with Phil Boyer at several of his clubs and the pair scored 53 goals for Bournemouth in 1970-71, 33 for Norwich in 1974-75 and 31 for Southampton in 1977-78.

He won seven caps for Scotland and scored three goals at international level.
