Dundee United v Arbroath Head-to-head Record (DUFC Archive)

Arbroath

Formed 31 years before Dundee Hibs, the clubs first met in the local Carrie Cup competition in the first year of the Clubs existence. They met again in the Qualifying Cup, and of course the Forfarshire Cup before finally meeting in the League when the met in Division Two in 1921.

They clubs met regularly in Division Two from then onwards, through to United's promotion to Division One in 1960. Eight years later Arbroath also won promotion to the top flight, and they shared Division One status for most of the early 1970s, until the invention of the Premier Division in 1975. Since then the clubs have met only in the Cup competitions, with United beating the Gayfield Park club on the way to the 1988 and 1994 Scottish Cup finals.
