Match Report


We took the lead in the first half, somewhat against the ron of play, when skipper Davie Cross carried the ball up field and lobbed Barrie. Brechin, however, provided a rude awakening as they quickly overhauled that lead. It was then Archie Aikman stepped in. A forty-yard solo run ended with Archie Aikman cracking in his first goal for the club. Better was to follow. Former clubmate Jimmy Dunlop slipped Archie a pass, and Archie Aikman went on to score his second and a valuable winner which took United above four clubs.
