First Team Debuts

Maurice Malpas scored for the 25th time for the Club.

Uniteds best period was the opening twenty minutes and it took a rare headed goal from player/coach Maurice Malpas to make the break through. Ray McKinnon's spectacular volley six minutes later was the icing on the cake as the Tangerines maintained their 100% record over the festive fixtures.
