Biography


Hugh came through the youth development programme at Tannadice and was playing for the U-21 side by 1997-98. Having appeared for the first team during the summer tour of Ireland, he made his competitive debut against Dundee in the first match of the 1999-00 season and became established in the United first team squad. Having played for Scotland at schools and Under-16 levels, he also turned out for the Under-21 side several times that season.


He featured less in the next campaign but scored his first goal for the Club in a victory away to St Johnstone and followed that up with a goal at Dens Park in a 3-2 win in January. He eventually went out on loan to Raith Rovers in January 2002, and Stirling Albion in August 2002, before moving to Forfar Athletic in the summer of 2003. He had two seasons at Station Park, then moved to Arbroath for the 2005-06 season. In January 2006 he moved to Montrose, where he played regularly, quickly becoming a fans favourite at Links Park, before announcing his retirement in 2011.

Timeline


  • Date of Birth

    Hugh was born on this date in Dundee.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Hugh came through the youth development programme at Tannadice and was playing for the U-21 side by 1997-98. Having appeared for the first team during the summer tour of Ireland, he made his competitive debut against Dundee in the first match of the 1999-00 season and became established in the United first team squad. Having played for Scotland at schools and Under-16 levels, he also turned out for the Under-21 side several times that season.

  • After no goals and no points from our two home meetings with our near neighbours last season, this was a very welcome way in which to open the new campaign. Over and above that, the manner in which the side brushed off the disappointment of being pegged back to go on and win was highly encouraging, and a quality not often in evidence last term. There were close to 12,000 fans packed in for a unique start to the league campaign with neighbours Dundee, our first visitors. United set up in a 4-4-2 formation with Dodds and Thompson leading the line.

  • United went into the match on the back of two consecutive wins this year and were quietly confident. However, Dundee had won both'this season's derbies so both teams fancied their chances of success. With a sett-out crowd at Dens expected, there was huge anticipation in the city leading up to the match. United boss Alex Smith made two changes, both enforced to the side that won at Links Park in the Scottish Cup with Jamie Buchan at left back in place of David Partridge and Hugh Davidson replacing Hasney Aljofree in midfield, both absentees missing the match through suspension. There were derby debuts for youngsters Paul Gallacher and Jamie McCunnie, while no fewer than another three players, Jim Lauchlan, Danny Griffin and Derek Liltey were also making their first appearance in this fixture for United.

  • United boss Alex Smith kept the same side for the third consecutive SPL match with youngsters Jamie McCunnie and Paul Gallacher retaining their places.
