  • Signed For Dundee United

    Alan was the son of former United player Jim Irvine. He had been wth Hibs, Falkirk and Liverpool before he signed for United. He did not have the desired impact at Tannadice and in February 1988 he left to join Shrewsbury Town for around £60,000.

  • Two soft penalties, one for either side, told the story of this latest meeting with our great north east rivals. Taking everything into consideration a draw was probably a fair reflection of events. Chances perhaps occurred more often than normal in these matches. Ian McPhee saw a volley tipped over by Leighton and at the other end Joe Miller headed a Bett cross over, when it looked easier to score.

  • Last Appearance - Hibernian 0 - 1 Dundee United

    This was a match that started innocuously enough, but for some reason developed into a bruising affair with Hibs losing the services of two players who were red carded and a further two were booked as were Billy McKinlay and John Clark. Regrettably, the match will be best remembered for the field offences, which tended to obscure any football on display. The first half contained little of note in a playing sense. George McCluskey shot over and Eamonn Bannon made contact with a long John Clark free which Gordon did well to smother.
