Biography


Alex began his career as a youth player at Celtic, making a dozen appearances during his four years as a professional at Celtic Park. He joined Greenock Morton in August 1991 for a fee of £100,000, becoming the club’s top scorer for two seasons. After a short spell on loan with Port Vale Kevin Keegan took the striker to Newcastle United in July 1993 in a deal worth £250,000. His two years at St James' Park were mostly limited to substitute appearances, and he moved to Ipswich Town in February 1995, scoring a hat-trick on his debut. He helped them reach the play-offs for a place in the Premiership at the end of the 1997-98 season.

Two months into the 1998-99 season, Paul Sturrock brought Alex to Tannadice in a £500,000 move and he made his debut against Kilmarnock in October 1998. His first goal came a week later, a winner against Hearts at Tynecastle, but by the end of that season he had only found the net once more in nearly 30 appearances. Linked with moved to Cardiff City and Manchester City, he went out on loan to Preston North End in September 1999. On returning to Tannadice in December, he fought his way back into the first team, and scored a late double for another victory at Tynecastle. After five games at the start of the 2000-01 season, he was released in September, joining York City. After three years there he moved to non-league Pickering Town. He then managed Spennymoor United, West Auckland and Pickering Town.

  • The less said about this game the better. Killie were always in control and deservedly won. An apparent lifeline was thrown to us with the 58th minute award of a penalty when Vareille was adjudged to have impeded Jim Paterson. For once the normally reliable Billy Dodds failed to beat Marshall from the spot and with that went any chances of taking something from the game in which Alex Mathie started and Jason de Vos came on as a substitute for both to make their debuts. Vareille's late goal was no less than the visitors deserved.

  • Alex Mathie opened his account for United with the winning goal as United deservedly collected all three points at Tynecastle. Jason de Vos made his first start for the club, while Magnus Skoldmark also bravely played despite still recovering from a depressed fracture of the cheek-bone and both men helped the United defence keep a clean sheet to compliment the win.

  • United looked to find solace in the League Cup after struggling to find a win so far in the League campaign. A changed team faced a difficult trip to Recreation Park Alloa as they set about securing their first win of the season.
