First Team Debuts


A close call with Kjell Olofsson's equaliser coming when all appeared lost. Paul Sheerin recently on trial at Tannadice came back to haunt us when he steered in the opener after Sieb Dykstra had done well to keep out a Stewart shot.

Gary McSwegan on another day might well have had a first half hat-trick. Instead, we had to sweat until the last ten minutes when top scorer Kjell Olofsson grabbed a life line for us with his deflected shot from 12 yards which beat the heroic Calder in goal.
