Match Report


Having been dumped out of the cup by Aberdeen and instead of an idle
Saturday, we took the opportunity of playing off the Dewar Shield final against Peterhead from the Highland League.The first half was best forgotten by Tannadice supporters, as the Northern visitors took all the plaudits.

An interval lecture by manager Jim McLean obviously had the desired effect with United going ahead almost immediately on the resumption. Andy Rolland's inch perfect cross was nodded in by Ian Mitchell. Kenny Cameron appeared to all bar the referee of having increased that lead ten minutes later, but his rocket shot hit the stantion and came straight out with the official waving play on. The authenticity of Andy Rolland's goal a few minutes later was never in doubt. The full-back finishing of a great move between himself and Pat Gardner. The latter then almost immediaiely hit the target when he headed in an Archie Knox cross.
