First Team Debuts


Despite trailing at the interval, United ultimately aquaplaned their way to victory on an atrocious afternoon. After dominating most of the first half. St Mirren sneaked ahead when Peter Mackie headed in a Jim Rooney cross which had been headed on by Gallacher.

Parity was restored two minutes after the interval. Paul Sturrock was in the process of controlling an Alex Taylor cross when Mark Fulton pole-axed him. Eamonn Bannon confidently swept home the resultant spot kick. Eamonn Bannon scored a second when his headed effort from a Stuart Beedie cross, struck Paul Sturrock before beating Stewart. Brian Gallacher then headed an equaliser before Eamonn Bannon surged into the box and Paul Sturrock pushed home Eamonn's low cross for the winner.
