Kane Hemmings fine season was rewarded when he picked up the Andrew De Vries trophy at the annual DSA Player of the Year awards on Sunday evening.
The award voted for by the Clubs supporters is the official Club Player of the Year award and was given to Kane after an incredible season infront of goal for the Dundee striker.

Kostadin Gadzhalov has signed a new one year deal with the club. Kosta featured 15 times for the club during the 2015/16 season scoring his first goal for Dundee in the derby in May. I'm happy with this news as it means our squad is getting stronger.

Dundee  have signed Dutch striker Yordi Teijsse, Yordi signs after a prolific season in the Hoofdklasse division in his homeland that saw him hit the net 31 times for Quick Boys as they won the title. The young striker has signed a two year deal.

Dundee have signed Mark O'Hara who played for Kilmarnock for the last 4 years, the 20 year old defender is highly rated and has been capped for Scotland at U19 and U21 level.

Dundee will play Alloa and Dumbarton in Pre-Season games away from home, and for Pre-Season training camp will be in Austria this year.

Last Three Games

Dundee lost 1-0 to Hamilton  at Dens, a poor performance again at home cost the dark blues, Nick Ross should have scored in a rare chance for the home side.

Next Game and Dundee drew 1-1 with Kilmarnock I made the game, but it was end of the season fare, Rory Loy scored with a fine header and Dundee did play some decent stuff in the first half.

Second half was a different story and Kilmarnock deserved their draw in the end, a sloppy goal for Dundee to lose.

Last game was up in Inverness and again Dundee failed to win in the Highland going down 4-0, I travelled up but was very disappointed with the result. Our season was over a few weeks ago when we beat United at Dens.

Here's to next season which hopefully see Dundee with a stronger defence and  midfield.

Dundee 2, Dundee United 1, Ladbrokes Premiership, 02-May-16

In the last Derby of the season Dundee came out winners by 2 goals to 1. They had t do it the hard way with United scoring first when Ofere put the visitors ahead after 53 minutes with a low finish. Dundee stormed back and levelled when Gadzhalov headed home to the delight of the Dundee fans. A draw was enough to put United down to The Championship.

But deep into injury time Dundee got the winning goal when Stewart played a wee pass to Craig Wighton and the young striker placed his shot into the corner to send the Dundee fans wild.

This goal put out bitter rivals down and it was good to see Dundee fans so happy with this result.

April Round-Up

Dundee beat Ross County 5-2 in which was a fine performance from the Dark Blues, early goals from Stewart and Hemmings put Dundee in control. The Staggies pulled a goal back soon after and had a wee spell of pressure. But Loy scored Dundee's third on 37 minutes. Just before half-time County scored again to make the half-time score 3-2.

Second half and Dundee had early chances but could not add to the score, but with 20 minutes to go Wighton replaced Loy, and soon after the young striker put Dundee 4-2 up to seal the three points for the home side. In the final minute Stewart scored a wonderful solo goal to send the Dundee fans home happy.
