Timeline

  • Date of Birth

    Tom was born on this date in Glasgow.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Tom had played with Dunfermline Athletic, Hamilton Academical, Alloa Athletic, Dumbarton and Walsall before signing for United. He was an ever present in the line up for the rest of the season, and became top scorer. In the following campaign, he played less frequently and was offered a free transfer in January 1956. There were no offers and he was released three months later.

  • 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.

  • A quite remarkable encounter as United slumped to another defeat in a troubled season. Yet it is doubtful if any United supporter envisaged defeat when the half-time whistle blew with United three goals ahead. Unfortunately, our county neighbours staged a staggering second half come-back and overhauled the three-goal lead to dump United into bottom position in the B Division.

  • It was a freakish game at Firs Park, where Dundee United kept their unbeaten record in the league, and chalked up their fourth league draw. The pitch was bumpy, sodden and dotted with pools. With heavy rain and a high wind added, anything could happen. And that's just how it turned out - but United came home with a valuable point.
