  • Signed For Dundee United

    Joe had been with Sheffield Wednesday, Colchester United and Scarborough before he signed for United on a free transfer. He had the misfortune to make his debut in the side that suffered United’s record defeat and never played again.

  • United Wing Half Andy Tait opened the scoring after just 30 seconds at Fir Park, but after that it was one way traffic. Scotland international - and future United forward - Wilson Humphries scored a quick-fire hat-trick, and with a Willie Redpath penalty and a brace from John Hunter, the home side went in at the interval 6-1 up. The same players repeated the scoring after the break, Humphries finishing with six, Hunter with four and Redpath grabbing a second penalty.
