Timeline

  • Signed For Dundee United

    James was an amateur signed by United during WW2 but a few weeks later he appears to have left the area.

  • The 4000 crowd at Tannadice showed Dundee is still eager for senior football.

  • Dunfermline played good enough stuff in the outfield, but couldn't finish it off. United were a haphazard lot in all departments, save goal, and failed to cash in on their greatest asset, the shooting power of Huddersfield's Juliussen.
