First Team Debuts


United got the ideal send off before their European Cup debut in Malta with this clear-cut victory. After totally dominating the opening spell United eventually took the lead in 23 minutes when John Reilly's cross was netted by Davie Dodds. Three minutes from the break Davie Dodds struck again, heading home Paul Hegarty's cross.

The third goal didn't come until midway through the second half with Ralph Milne nodding in Eamonn Bannon's perfect cross. Within a minute of his appearance as substitute Billy Kirkwood, with his first touch, slotted home the fourth when he ran on to Ralph Milne's through pass. Six minutes from time Ralph Milne latched on to a slip by Willie Jamieson and ran on to slip the ball past Rough, Two Hibs players, Jamieson and Brazil, were booked.
