First Team Debuts

Milestones

United lost out to their North East rivals in front of almost 15,000 at Pittodrie. It was John Hewitt who did the damage notching two goals, one in each half, to give the Dons victory. United had come into this game in good form so the defeat was all the harder to take for the travelling Arabs who sat in the Beach end. An injury to Paul Hegarty didnít help matters when he had to limp of after only 20 minutes.
