Timeline

  • Date of Birth

    Archie was born on this date in Tealing.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Archie started his senior career at Alloa Athletic and then played for Forfar Athletic and St Mirren before he joined United. He was an important member of the squad for five years and assisted the development of the younger players. He was in line up for United’s first Scottish Cup final 1974. In July 1976, he joined Montrose.

  • The biggest difference between the two teams was Hibs skipper Pat Stanton. United, with Archie Knox making his debut, repelled Hibs' furious onslaught only to find themselves trailing to a magnificent Pat Stanton goal, his unsaveable shot giving Hibs a 32nd minute lead. The tangerines began to dictate matters in second half, only for Hibs to seal victory with two goals in three minutes near the end.

  • Dundee United's recent signing George Fleming made his debut for the Tangerines, while 'keeper MacKay came in to replace injured McAlpine.

  • Last Appearance - Hibernian 1 - 1 Dundee United
