Timeline

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Johnny was with Maryhill Harp and made his first appearance for United as a trialist. He then signed, but spent most of his time in the reserves. He was called up for national service in 1952, and over the next two seasons he was in the line up occasionally and was released in May 1955.

  • United's fortunes under new manager Reggie Smith, apart from a victory over Third Lanark, still continued under a cloud. Yet in this latest league outing with Brechin we looked to be heading for a much needed boost after George D Grant and Johnny McIvor had given us a 2-1 interval lead. Our Angus neighbours overhauled that lead after the interval to leave United struggling near the foot of the table.

  • A Scottish Cup tie in October? Well, United's poor showing in the League the previous season brought them into action early, as early as the fourth round, two rounds before the entry of the big guns. Matters weren't helped by the fact that newly appointed manager Reggie Smith hadn't been able to secure any new players in time for the tie, and had to depend on the existing signed players. Even allowing for all that, this was an insipid display as United tumbled out of the cup at the hands of their county rivals. George Crawford scored an OG for United. Albert Craig, William Dunn and Thomas Martin scored the goals for Forfar Athletic.
