He agreed professional terms at Tannadice, signing a three year contract on June 26, 2013 and left school at Duncanrig Secondary to pursue his football career.

  • Frederic Frans opened the scoring in the sixth minute, crashing a header into the United net as he rose unchallenged to meet Penrice’s driven corner from the right. Simon Murray was, as usual, making a nuisance of himself and set Knoyle off down the right; his deep cross was met at the back post by Billy Mckay, but the striker could only find the side netting from the angle. Murray was again at the heart of United’s next attack, a cute turn on the right touchline gave him room to drive past Penrice and fire a cross come shot through the six yard area but it found neither the net nor a team mate. In an even half, Partick seemed content to hit United on the counter attack and United were fortunate that Kris Doolan did not spot the run of Edwards, otherwise the Thistle attacker would have been clean through on goal. United’s best chance of the half came on twenty one minutes: Dixon robbed Amoo off the ball on the half way line and raced forward before sliding the ball to Mckay 25 yards out. Mckay took a single touch and fired a wicked shot that had Thistle keeper Scully stretching to push away from goal. Mckay then had another effort from distance, but this time the shot screwed well wide. John Rankin was next to try his luck from distance, fully forty yards from goal, he fired a free kick which the Thistle defence did well to deflect for a corner. Souttar was unfortunate not to make contact with Fraser’s cross and the chance came to nothing. In the forty first minute United were undone again, as has been so often this season, by their own poor defending. A long ball was flicked on by Amoo, looping the ball over Souttar, Dillon stretched to clear, but the ball rebounded off his own chest into the path of Kris Doolan, who waltzed past Kawashima and rolled the ball into the empty net.

  • United got themselves back on track and opened the new year with a comfortable win over Brechin City at Tannadice. However, Csaba Laszlo did only make one change to his starting line up for this game, and again it was an enforced change due to a long-term injury. Scott Fraser broke his foot in the defeat in Paisley, and was feared to be out for the rest of the season. James Keatings took his place in the starting line-up. Right back Cammy Ballantyne had been recalled from a successful loan spell at Montrose, although despite Stewart Murdoch’s continued absence through injury he can to be content with a place on the bench.
