Match Report


United knew before the game that they had already qualified for the semi's. Graham was in goal after Hamish McAlpine was banished from the camp.

Both United goals came in the second half of the match. Walter Smith, in the side for John Holt who had a bad ankle injury, scored the first and Derek Addison scored a fantastic second.
