Biography

A product of the Dundee United youth academy, Harry followed in his brother John's footsteps when he signed on as a youth player at Tannadice at the age of 14, before agreeing his first professional form two years later. Harry's early development began with Celtic, where he progressed through their youth ranks from age 8 through to their Under 14 team - however he opted in 2012 for a move to United instead of Celtic's St Ninian's High School partnership.

Towering over his colleagues at 6' 7", Harry is believed to be the tallest player ever on United's books. Since signing professionally in 2014, he has remained a regular feature in the Club's Development Squad. In December 2015, Harry signed a new contract that will keep him at Tannadice until May 2018. At the end of the 2015-16 season, Harry was given his first team debut, starting in the 3-3 draw with Partick Thistle in May, and came off the bench to score his first goal for the Club in the final game of the season in the 4-2 win over Kilmarnock.

The new manager Ray McKinnon has named him in the first team squad for the 2016-17 campaign.

Timeline

  • Date of Birth

    Harry was born on this date in Aberdeen.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    A product of the Dundee United youth academy, Harry followed in his brother John's footsteps when he signed on as a youth player at Tannadice at the age of 14, before agreeing his first professional form two years later. Harry's early development began with Celtic, where he progressed through their youth ranks from age 8 through to their Under 14 team - however he opted in 2012 for a move to United instead of Celtic's St Ninian's High School partnership.

  • Frederic Frans opened the scoring in the sixth minute, crashing a header into the United net as he rose unchallenged to meet Penrice’s driven corner from the right. Simon Murray was, as usual, making a nuisance of himself and set Knoyle off down the right; his deep cross was met at the back post by Billy Mckay, but the striker could only find the side netting from the angle. Murray was again at the heart of United’s next attack, a cute turn on the right touchline gave him room to drive past Penrice and fire a cross come shot through the six yard area but it found neither the net nor a team mate. In an even half, Partick seemed content to hit United on the counter attack and United were fortunate that Kris Doolan did not spot the run of Edwards, otherwise the Thistle attacker would have been clean through on goal. United’s best chance of the half came on twenty one minutes: Dixon robbed Amoo off the ball on the half way line and raced forward before sliding the ball to Mckay 25 yards out. Mckay took a single touch and fired a wicked shot that had Thistle keeper Scully stretching to push away from goal. Mckay then had another effort from distance, but this time the shot screwed well wide. John Rankin was next to try his luck from distance, fully forty yards from goal, he fired a free kick which the Thistle defence did well to deflect for a corner. Souttar was unfortunate not to make contact with Fraser’s cross and the chance came to nothing. In the forty first minute United were undone again, as has been so often this season, by their own poor defending. A long ball was flicked on by Amoo, looping the ball over Souttar, Dillon stretched to clear, but the ball rebounded off his own chest into the path of Kris Doolan, who waltzed past Kawashima and rolled the ball into the empty net.

  • United kicked off at Rugby Park with recently appointed manager Ray McKinnon sitting in the stands, and caretaker boss Gordon Young taking charge for one last time for the final League game of a very difficult season. The stand-in coach made four changes from the midweek draw with Partick Thistle, with Luis Zwick, Mark Durnan, Coll Donaldson and Justin Johnson coming in for Kawashima, Harry Souttar, Sean Dillon and Billy Mckay.

  • Last Appearance - Arbroath 1 - 1 Dundee United

    Ray McKinnon’s managerial reign at Dundee United began with a group phase visit to Arbroath for the newly formatted League Cup competition - now known as the Betfred Cup. McKinnon’s new-look side featured summer signings Cammy Bell in goal, Lewis Toshney, Stewart Murdoch and Tope Obadeyi, but there was no place for Willo Flood, who was still recovering from a knock he picked up for Aberdeen days before his return to Tannadice. On-loan Dons striker Cammy Smith had to settle for a place on the bench. Former United youth Ryan McCord was in the Arbroath line-up.
