  • We took the lead in the first half, somewhat against the ron of play, when skipper Davie Cross carried the ball up field and lobbed Barrie. Brechin, however, provided a rude awakening as they quickly overhauled that lead. It was then Archie Aikman stepped in. A forty-yard solo run ended with Archie Aikman cracking in his first goal for the club. Better was to follow. Former clubmate Jimmy Dunlop slipped Archie a pass, and Archie Aikman went on to score his second and a valuable winner which took United above four clubs.
