Biography


Louis started with AMsoccer at Falkland Primary school Afterschools programme when he was 8 years old, progressing through the levels with the Fife-based community organisation set up by Austin MacPhee. After spending two years as a youth player with Dunfermline Athletic, he returned to AM Soccer Club to play for their newly launched first team. In November 2015, the young striker had a trial at Raith Rovers playing and scoring for Ray McKinnon's Under-20 Development team. In May 2016, Louis made the local headlines when he was scouted by AS Roma and underwent a three day trial in Italy, before Ray McKinnon - now United manager - brought the 17 year-old to Tannadice in August 2016.

Starring in the Development side, he made his first team debut as a substitute against Cowdenbeath during the League Cup group stages in August 2017, and at the end of that season he signed a two year contract extension. The 2018-19 season saw the young striker involved in the Challenge Cup matches, as well as a substitute appearance in the League Cup against Ross County. In January 2019 he was sent out on loan to junior side Broughty Atheltic, managed by former United player Jamie McCunnie, where he netted 23 goals in a four month stint. On his return to Tannadice, Louis was involved in the first teams pre-season friendlies against East Fife, Brechin City and Dumbarton, scoring in the latter two matches.

    Louis started with AMsoccer at Falkland Primary school Afterschools programme when he was 8 years old, progressing through the levels with the Fife-based community organisation set up by Austin MacPhee. After spending two years as a youth player with Dunfermline Athletic, he returned to AM Soccer Club to play for their newly launched first team.

  • United began their defence of the Irn Bru Challenge Cup with an ultimately comfortable win over Cowdenbeath. Ray McKinnon took the opportunity to completely overhaul the starting line-up. Only James Keatings kept his place in the team from the previous Saturday’s league win over Queen of the South. Youth players Harvey Dailly, Logan Chalmers and Graham Taylor, along with recent signing Paul Quinn, all made their first starts for the club.

  • United claimed the first real chance of the game in the twelfth minute with academy graduate Scott Banks crossing the ball into Shankland who struck the ball from inside the penalty box. Unfortunately, the keeper was there to parry the ball. United won a further corner in the 20th minute, the ball falling to Clark who went for the incredible with his bicycle kick being deflected out for another corner, leading to Shankland heading the ball just wide of the post from seven yards out. Adrián Sporle took United ahead in the 27th minute of the game scoring his first goal for the Club, cushioning the ball into the back of the net, being assisted by Shankland. Scott Banks stood out throughout the first half being unlucky to fire just wide of the mark in the 32nd minute. Cowdenbeath keeper Dabrowski was also stretched to save Banks’s top corner attempt from outside the box just two minutes later. Dabrowski continued to play well for Cowdenbeath after another long-range effort from Shankland was saved in the centre of the goal with five minutes to go in the first half.

  • Robbie Neilson made one change from the side that convincingly defeated Dunfermline last week, with fit again Mark Connolly back in for Ian Harkes, while Calum Butcher initially stepped forward into his usual midfield role.

  • Last Appearance - Dundee United 3 - 0 QOS
