Timeline


  • Signed For Dundee United

    Bobby signed from Lochgelly Albert. He was a first choice for the next two seasons and signed for a third term but then played mainly in the reserves. Originally released in May 1949, he appears to have returned to play for the reserves in the early months of 1949-50.

  • Last Appearance - Dundee United 5 - 5 Arbroath

    All the fun of the fair at Tannadice. Fast football, goals a-plenty, thrills and spills. Celtic's Colonel Shaughnessy saw the second half. If he was looking for winger, he saw four sparklers. Lang had a hat-trick and Cruickshank was a wee terror. McEwan was first-half star, beating his man and crossing accurately. But the king-pin was the precise, ever-cool Quinn, of United. There was a lot of tasty manoeuvring in the game, especially on the Arbroath left and the Dundee right. But when the heat was on there was no time for pretty stuff. Veteran Duncan Ogilvie hadn't the hard job tackled by M'Kcnzie, who found M'Kay as full of spark as an electric cable. Hill was the Lichtie's chief schemer. Grant took the eye in the half-backs. It was ding-dong all the way. Maybe Waggie Ross was a bit too impetuous at times. Once he had his name taken. Once he ended up in the back of the rigging. Fitting climax was Arbroath's equaliser in the last five seconds. A good result.
