Match Report

With only three of those who played at Parkhead in the side, United did really well to eliminate a home outfit at full strength. Dave Dodds and Ralph Milne, gave the Tannadice side an interval lead with Stark netting for Arbroath. Gerry Lesslie and subititute Jimmy Kerr added another two for United with Gavine counting again for Arbroath.
