Timeline

  • Date of Birth

    Ronnie was born on this date in Glasgow.

  • A quite remarkable encounter as United slumped to another defeat in a troubled season. Yet it is doubtful if any United supporter envisaged defeat when the half-time whistle blew with United three goals ahead. Unfortunately, our county neighbours staged a staggering second half come-back and overhauled the three-goal lead to dump United into bottom position in the B Division.
