Match Report


A quite remarkable holiday fixture this turned to be when you look at the final scoreline andtake into account the fact that our Perth neighbours appeared well on their way to a point with 35 minutes left on the clock! Suddenly, Alex Rennie's side were hit with an unexpected torrent of goals which rang up Jim McLean's men's best win of the season. Jim Pearson had given Saints an interval lead and in truth it was well deserved.

We were fortunate enough to get back on level terms thanks to a Pat Gardner penalty conversion which opened the floodgates. Counters by Archie Knox, Kenny Cameron and Stuart Markland followed on quickly before a miserable afternoon for the visitors was capped by former United defender Alex Rennie putting through his own goal for a fifth for the home side It completed our festive progmmme in great fashion to make it three wins and a draw.
