Hailing from Belgium, United still have two player connections with Lokeren. Both Jim Bett and Tonny Mols played for both clubs. Lokeren faced United in the UEFA Cup in 1980/81 and both legs ended in a draw. Unfortunately for United, the away goals rule helped Lokeren through to the 3rd round after a 1-1 draw at Tannadice.
