Match Report


United surmounted this hurdle with a fair degree of ease and two early goals really killed the match as a contest. Dave Beaumont was the instigator of both these with two long throws. His first found Ralph Milne who dispatched the ball swiftly past Arthur. John Reilly got the second when Dave's throw was headed on to John whose low shot beat Arthur at his right hand post.

The game then fell into a bit of a rut and only the introduction of Paul Sturrock in the 57th minute livened up proceedings. However, it was only with quarter of an hour to go that United extended their lead. Richard Gough made a 50 yard dash upfield, took a return pass from Davie Dodds and chipped the ball past Arthur. A minute later Paul Sturrock wheeled on to a Milne pass and his angular drive gave Arthur no chance.
