Match Report

This was the beginning of United's promotion drive. Gibby Ormond, brother of the late Willie, had just been signed from Airdrie and he helped United coast to a relatively comfortable 4-1 win at Coatbridge. Willie McDonald, Jim Irvine, Dennis Gillespie and newcomer, Gibby Ormond, got the all-important goals that kept United tucked in behind Second Division leaders St Johnstone.
