Timeline

  • Date of Birth

    Doug was born on this date in Musselburgh.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Doug was with Hibs, Falkirk and Ipswich Town before he was signed by United. He was in the side for the next two months but in a surprise move he went to Falkirk in mid November 1964 for an undisclosed fee.

  • A Dundee Derby at Dens Park in the League Cup was how United began what was to prove a season of quickly changing fortunes. However, all went well on the opening day. Dennis Gillespie put United ahead after 14 minutes, and Lewis Thom extended that lead twenty minutes later, before Andy Penman's penalty conversion reduced the arrears before the interval. With Bert Slater performing heroics in Dundee's goal to keep United at bay, it came as something as a surprise when Bobby Waddell notched a somewhat fortuitous equaliser with 20 minutes left. But seven niinutes from the end Frannie Munro, capped a promising debut, by steering in a header at the far post from a Johnny Graham cross, to secure a good start to the League Cup campaign.

  • After winning all three of their League ties, the commencement of the League season brought disappointment with 11,000 fans leaving Tannadice convinced they had just witnessed highway robbery. To be fair, however, at no time did United reproduce their League Cup form and failed to breach a stuffy Thistle rearguard. Partick took the lead on the quarter of an hour mark, when Billy Hainey blasted the ball past Sandy Davie. Four minutes after the restart, United got back on level terms, when Jimmy Briggs' longrange pass found Doug Moran who coolly brought the ball down and slammed it past Nivea. Almost immediately, however, Billy Hainey had restored Thistle's lead which, despite non stop pressure, United failed to negate.

  • Last Appearance - Falkirk 0 - 0 Dundee United

    No goals — and nobody demanded a recount because although this match was not entirely devoid of good points, but net-bulging very seldom threatened to become one of them. Bearing in mind United's plight, however, the Tannadice men were delighted to prise a point from Brockville, especially as Falkirk should have had both safely imprisoned by half-time. After the break, with Doug Soutar on the wing, Denis Gillespie at centre, and Johnny Graham at inside-left, there was a distinct improvement. Denis Gillespie had a header cleared by Lambie, Johnny Graham hit a post, and Markie had to clear a Soutar shot that had beaten Whigham. Not a classic but the end result was satistactory as it was only United's fourth point from eight outings.
