Timeline

  • New Manager Reggie Smith had been promised time to rebuild a side which had only won once in five matches since he took office. To this end he introduced local boy Sandy Stephen from Elmwood and a trialist from Ashfield Juniors, centre-forward Billy Dawson. And United had to thank their trialist forward for their share of the spoils, with the West of Scodand centre, Billy Dawson, netting our goal.
