  1. The striker left Dundee in 2016 after scoring 28 Goals in 44 matches for the Dark Blues which also earned him a PFA Player of the Year nomination along with fellow strike partner, Greg Stewart. Kane left Dundee to move to Oxford United after the club triggered a release clause which seen the big striker leave for a reported £250,000. He scored 15 times with Oxford before he was loaned out to Mansfield Town where he scored a further 15 times for them. Last season, Hemmings moved to Notts County and found the back of the net 14 times. There was speculation that St Johnstone had enquired about the availability of loaning Hemmings but his old club were quick to swoop and offer him a permanent move.
  2. Twelve months on, the duo are, of course, long gone from Dens, having joined Oxford United and Birmingham City respectively last summer for six-figure sums. The pair have certainly experienced contrasting fortunes since leaving Dundee. Hemmings initially struggled to make an impact with Oxford but finished the season with 18 goals to his credit. The 25-year-old also made what he described as “a-dream-come-true” appearance at Wembley at the start of April in the Checkatrade Trophy Final against Coventry. Michael Appleton’s League 1 side lost that game 2-1 and also just missed out on the promotion play-offs but overall, Hemmings can be pleased with the impact he has made, especially after his last sojourn in England at Barnsley left him disillusioned with football. With two years left on his deal at the Kassam Stadium, it looks like Hemmings made the right move – however it is fair to say the jury is still out on whether his former Dundee strike partner Stewart’s choice was also a wise one. The 27-year-old has struggled to make an impact for the Championship side and has only made 22 appearances, mostly from the bench. He has yet to score for the Blues with his last goal coming for Dundee away back in July against Forfar in the League Cup. However, Stewart has not been helped by the fact that his team are now on their third manager of the season. The former Cowdenbeath front man was a long-term target for boss Gary Rowett, who awarded the player a three-year deal at St Andrews. The manager admitted he was prepared to be patient with Stewart as he adjusted to the pace and greater physical demands of the Championship. However, the Birmingham board did not show similar patience with Rowett who was surprisingly sacked in December with Birmingham sitting in seventh in the table just three points behind Reading in third. He was replaced by Gianfranco Zola but Birmingham went into freefall and the Italian resigned last month with the team only winning twice in 24 games during his tenure. The Blues then turned to veteran boss Harry Redknapp in a bid to rescue their season. The 70-year-old handed Stewart a five-minute cameo appearance from the bench in the derby against Aston Villa on April 23 but a day later he was playing for the club’s development side against Hull. Redknapp’s full focus at the moment is on Sunday’s crunch game at Bristol with the Blues looking to win to ensure they are safe from the relegation play-offs. The manager has already hinted that if the club secure their Championship survival then he would look to stay on. However, if he remains in the St Andrews hot-seat, there is no guarantee that Stewart will be part of his plans despite having two years left on his contract. If Stewart is once again seen as a work in progress then Birmingham would probably attempt to loan him out in a bid to obtain regular football. That would raise hopes among Dundee fans that the prodigal could return to Dens however it is far more likely that Birmingham would look to keep tabs on him closer to home. If though the English side opt to cut their losses with Stewart, then there will certainly be interest from sides in this country. Birmingham will no doubt look to recoup at least part of their transfer fee which would rule Dundee out of the reckoning with the player previously linked with Rangers and Aberdeen. What is certain is that his Player of the Year nomination must seem like a lifetime ago for the likeable Stewart.
  3. 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. There was stiff competition for the main trophy with Paul McGowan running Kane close, picking up a number of individual Club awards.
  4. At the time, it did appear to be in the “soft” category and on subsequent viewing, that has been confirmed and more. However, the Dark Blues and in-form hit-man Kane Hemmings were not going to look the proverbial gift horse in the mouth and there was certainly no doubting his finish to ensure Dundee shared the spoils. Overall, it was no more than Paul Hartley’s men deserved on the balance of play and chances created. The manager though will no doubt be unhappy with the goals his side conceded, especially the second where Stephen Pearson ghosted past some non-existent defending before firing past home goalie Scott Bain. Dundee though deserve a lot of credit for fighting back not once but twice in the game and there were plenty of other plus points. Paul McGowan took his goal really well and overall was the most effective I have seen him for a while and it was good to see Rory Loy back in the starting line-up again. The Dark Blues have a break from league business when they go to Dumbarton on Scottish Cup duty this weekend and they showed enough on Saturday to believe they can comfortably negotiate their way into the next round.
