Biography


Declan joined the United Academy from Hutchinson Vale in 2014, while also attending Ross High School. A promising youngster, he represented Scotland Schools at U17 level. He signed his first professional contract during the summer of 2017 and in October that same year he made his first-team debut as a substitute in a League match against Dumbarton. In May 2018, it was announced that he had signed a contract extension until May 2020.

Following an impressive pre-season ahead of the 2018-19 campaign, Declan made his starting eleven debut in United's season opener against Arbroath, and scored his first goal for the club during the League Cup group stages. That was followed by two League appearances from the bench, and two Challenge Cup starting places. In January 2018 the midfielder went on loan to Airdrieonians, and made his debut against Celtic at Celtic Park in the Scottish Cup. He made a total of 13 appearances for the Diamonds before returning to Tannadice at the end of the season.

Declan was involved in United's 2019-20 pre-season matches against East Fife, Brechin City and Dumbarton, starting in the match at Bayview.

Timeline


  • Date of Birth

    Declan was born on this date in Edinburgh.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Declan joined the United Academy from Hutchinson Vale in 2014, while also attending Ross High School. A promising youngster, he represented Scotland Schools at U17 level. He signed his first professional contract during the summer of 2017 and in October that same year he made his first-team debut as a substitute in a League match against Dumbarton. In May 2018, it was announced that he had signed a contract extension until May 2020.

  • Following the sacking of Ray McKinnon, his assistant Laurie Ellis took charge of Dundee United for the trip to face Dumbarton. Ellis took the opportunity to ring the changes after the defeat to Inverness, with five changes made to the starting 11. Fraser Fyvie and Lewis Toshney dropped out due to injury, with Paul McMullan, William Edjenguele and James Keatings being dropped to the bench. Into the side came Stewart Murdoch, Tam Scobbie, Billy King, Matty Smith and Scott Fraser.

  • United finally got their first win of the season with a 4-0 victory over Elgin City at Borough Briggs in their final Betfred Cup group.

  • Last Appearance - Dundee United 1 - 1 Partick Th

    After forcing a corner inside the opening 20 seconds, the Tangerines enjoyed most of the early possession, but it was Partick who spurned a glaring opportunity in the ninth minute. After Paul Watson miscued a headed clearance, Zak Rudden had clear space to drive into the box. He squared the ball for ex United forward Brian Graham seven yards out, however Benjamin Siegrist spread himself brilliantly to make a vital save. Three minutes later, after more Partick pressure, Darren Brownlie crossed for Tam O’Ware whose close-range header might have found the net had it not been straight at Siegrist. In the 17th minute the hosts created their first clear opportunity after Liam Smith and Rakish Bingham combined down the right. The latter sent in a low ball which Lawrence Shankland swiped at before it fell to Ian Harkes whose turn and shot was deflected behind. There wasn’t long to wait for the opener however, and when it did it was a thing of beauty. Mark Reynolds, deployed at left back for the second successive game, found himself in an advanced position down the flank and his cut back was only hacked clear to the edge of the box. Waiting in the perfect position was Dillon Powers who killed the ball before firing in a vicious right foot curler into the top corner, which left goalkeeper Scott Fox rooted. Thereafter, despite both sides trying to push forward, defences stayed on top as the game reached half time with United enjoying a slender lead.
