First Team Debuts

Milestones
Doug Houston played his 50th major competitive game for the Club.

Both legs against Keflavik took place on Tuesdays with the First Leg on the 23rd September 1975. The venue was IBK's Keklavikurvollur Stadium which is situated not far from the international airport where we landed on our recent trip to Iceland.

The match was played in a freezing wind and again there was an early goal in the match, but on this occasion it was United who scored first. Dave Narey had been a doubtful starter for the tie, and he took a pass from Andy Gray and smashed the ball into the net at the near post from 10 yards after only four minutes.

Two minutes from half-time Narey again hit the gold standard. A long throw by Frank Kopel was headed on by Paul Hegarty and the ball fell to Dave Narey who volleyed home from 12 yards. The Keflavik 'keeper got his hands to the ball, but failed to keep it out.

Those two Dave Narey goals were all that separated the two sides at the end of ninety minutes, but this was a comfortable United win in
front of 4,000 frozen fans.
