Match Report


With five teenagers in their side United were all out to impress—and did so after 20 minutes when Paul Sturrock headed them into the lead. Saints' Muir latched on to a slack pass-back five minutes after the break to level things but home sub. Billy Steele netted a late winner to secure the points.
