Timeline

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Davie signed for United from Airdrieonians. He was a left sided defender and missed few games throughout his United career but was released in April 1958.

  • Ayr United were also visitors to Tannadice to open the new season in the League Cup, but it was a far from happy start to the new campaign for Tannadice fans. Faced with three away fixtures following that opening game with Ayr, a victory was essential but it was Ayr who got off to the flying start and although, drawing at half-time, a goal by debutant Tom McLeod. who had previously played for Liverpool and Chesterfield. However, Ayr dominated the second-halfand went on to score five with George Grant scoring United's second.

  • After going down heavily in their opening League Cup game, United came a cropper yet again when they met the Pars at East End Park in their second sectional tie. Yet despite that final scoreline, it was in fact United who took the lead when former Hibs and Airdrie half-back Davie Cross gave them the lead with his first goal for the club. United held that lead at the interval but were sunk by the Fifers' second-half come-back and so went down heavily for the second successive match.
