Match Report

Following on from their opening fixture at Bathgate, United netted four again, this time at home to a young Bo'ness side. United's rout was saved for the second half, Dunn scoring the only goal of the first period, giving the visitors a lead at the interval.

For ten minutes after the restart, William Simpson in the Bo'ness goal defied the United forward line before John Bain eventually broke his resolve, rattling a loose ball home. Five minutes later, Harry Michie put United into the lead with a smart header as the balance of play shifted in the homester's favour. Michie scored again shortly after to make it 3-1. The Bo'ness 'keeper Simpson redeemed himself somewhat moments later when he saved a Duncan Hutchison penalty, but the reprieve was short lived as Bain netted his second just before the final whistle was blown to score United's fourth.
