Timeline

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Willie joined United from Falkirk in a swap deal that took George D Grant in the opposite direction.

  • Even after breaking a long losing sequence with a 5-4 win over Alloa, only the most optimistic of United's fans would have been prepared for this result. Whilst we were hoping that we would give a good account of ourselves at Douglas Park, these aspirations plummeted to zero when Danny Bell and Duncan McMillan had to call off. However, former Falkirk forward Willie Dunlop gave us a lead which we held until just four minutes trom the end. A shock against promotion seeking Accies seemed on the cards but, unfortunately, Accies got an equaliser through George Brown.
