Timeline

  • Date of Birth

    Owen was born on this date in Paisley.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Owen was a prolific striker with Dumbarton, Clydebank and Airdrieonians, before he moved to Bolton Wanderers and then to United. Already an Under-21 and 'B' international, in 1994 he had gained his one full cap for Republic of Ireland.

  • The home debut of Gary McSwegan and Owen Coyle's first appearance after his transfer the day before attracted the highest crowd of the season to Tannadice, but this was a match in which events off the field were to cast a shadow over proceedings. Early on Saints had the better of the exchanges and the United goal survived a major let off in the seventh minute. A cut-back from Twaddle was touched on by John O'Neil, but Ally Maxwell blocked his effort. The ball ran loose to George O'Boyle whose flick was goal-bound until Steven Pressley popped up to clear the ball just as it was on the point of crossing the line.

  • This great cup tie ended with United losing out on penalties, but it was a controversial spot kick which brought Dundee back into the game after United had gone ahead. Dave Bowman for Ray McKinnon was the only change from the side which had lost narrowly at Ibrox and the returning United skipper almost made it a great start for United when he took a return pass to fire in a first time shot which Billy Thomson was to turn round the post. This was to set the pattern for the evening as the ex-United keeper was to continually deny his former club. However, it was a mistake by 'Tommo' which gave United a 20th minute lead. Andy McLaren's flick came back to him off the referee and he jockeyed himself into a shooting position. His ground shot carried no great power, Billy let the ball slip from his grasp and Owen Coyle snapped up the chance from the rebound.
