Timeline

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Willie was an Arbroath player who joined United during WW2. After his debut he retained his place in the side for the rest of the 1941-42 season and in the next campaign he was again a regular in the line up until he left to join East Fife in July 1943.

  • Tradition told at Dundee. United always grand cup-fighters, forgot their manifold failings of recent weeks and handed out the biggest hammering given to a visiting team in Dundee for many moons. Saints will have to improve immensely if they are to have a chance in the second leg.
