Timeline

  • Date of Birth

    Craig was born on this date in Bellshill.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Craig came United’s youth programme. He was a Scotland schools, Under-16 and Under-21 international and was playing in the United reserve side by 1995-96. In 1996-97 he was part of the United team that won the Youth League.

  • United s biggest win of the season to date enabled them to leap-frog Aberdeen into fourth place. Robbie Winters opened the scoring after Walker directed the ball to him after slipping as he took a goal kick. Two headers from Steven Pressley in the space of 12 minutes early in the second half killed off the visitors and Kjell Olofsson whipped in a fourth for his first goal at Tannadice. The only saving grace for Aberdeen was that it could have been quite easily more!

  • Three superb strikes killed off our north-east opponents. Robbie Winters first half opener was negated by Windass early in the second period but a magnificenfly worked and executed goal by Craig Easton soon restored United's lead. From that point there was no way back for the Dons and Robbie Winters sealed victory with a stunning third.

  • Boss Ian McCall fielded a side with only two personnel changes from the team which went down to Aberdeen at Pittodrie in the SPL game two weeks ago. Mark Wilson was out through injury and Billy Dodds on the bench. Jamie McCunnie and Russell Latapy, the latter making his Dundee United debut, take their places. Gary Bollan was wearing the captain’s armband.
