First Team Debuts


United, despite struggling in the SPL, had another opportunity to reach a National Cup Semi-Final, the opposition being the other half of the Old Firm, Rangers. Right from the kick-off, Alex Smith's team hassled and hurried their opponents, and the Arabs maintained this level of commitment throughout the entire 90 minutes. Rangers hardly achieved a shot on goal the whole match and a goal from United's David Hannah, already a cup winner with United in 1994 again against the Ibrox side, was enough to seal another famous victory in front of a live Sky TV audience. It could, and should, have been more, but the one goal victory was more than enough to please the large Tangerine support. The evening's entertainment was further enhanced with superb live television pictures from the United dressing room.

The one ominous happening for the Club was just about to occur from deep within Tannadice Park itself, as Celtic legend Pat Bonar and former United coach Terry Butcher made the draw for the Semi-Final. United were once again drawn against the team from the East End of Glasgow that they have constantly struggled to overcome in cup competitions, Celtic, That match, however, was far away from the thoughts of everyone concerned with United as the recent progress from Alex Smith's men continued.
