Biography


Beginning his career as a trainee with Torquay United, Chris was released in 1988 and played for Dawlish Town and Barnstaple Town before re-signing for Torquay in 1990. He made over 100 appearances for the Gulls and was a member of their promotion winning side in 1991.

When his former Torquay United boss Ivan Golac arrived at Tannadice in the summer of 1993, Chris became the manager's first signing for a fee of £100,000 after a short trial. He made his first appearance in a pre-season friendly against Brechin City, scoring one of the goals, and made his competitive debut against Hamilton Academical in a League Cup tie. After a short run in the first team he was relegated to the reserves, and in December he went back to Torquay United on loan for a month.

His progress at Tannadice was further hindered by injury, and after leaving in January 1996 he had short spells with Wrexham, Scarborough and Exeter City before playing for several Non-League clubs in the South-West of England.

    On his arrival, new manager Ivan Golac stated that his intention was to have United play with Scottish aggression allied to continental skill.

  • 4. First Team Debut

    Hamilton 0 - 1 Dundee United
    League Cup (2nd Round)

    Douglas Park was the scene of an igniminious League exit four years ago and Accies gave little away and made us fight to the bitter end before we finally edged through thanks to a goal in extra time. Chris Myers made his Tangerine debut in a game which took a long time to come to life. All of what little first half action came in a spell immediately prior to the interval and Gary Bollan, who'd rep

    Last season United took all eight available points off Thistle and continued that fine form in their first away match of the new term. The home side didn't threaten until midway through the first half and by then Nelson had tipped over Gary Bollan's powerful header from a Paddy Connolly cross. United, however, did go ahead in the 26th minute when Christian Dailly

    After the poor showing at Tynecastle, the Tannadice line-up showed considerable change. Into the side came Billy McKinlay, Brian Welsh, Paddy Connolly and Jerren Nixon.

    The Tangerines began in impressive fashion, looking to quickly atone for the defeat by Hearts. Indeed they were unlucky not to go ahead after only three minutes when Alex Cleland robbed Collins. nicked past him, leaving him
