He was retained for the First Division campaign the following season but was unable to win a first team place and left to join Forfar Athletic in January 1926.

The players listed below were born on this day.
1920 - Matt McIlwain
An ex-Royal Marine Commando with the 42 – RM42 (one of the most significant divisions of the WWII South East Asia Campaign during WW2), Matt was a former Ayr United player who signed for United on a one month deal.
He was released when his contract expired and later joined Bolton Wanderers.
Eddie Thompson presented Paul Sturrock with a decanter after the striker scored three goals against Bohemians in the UEFA Cup.1984 - Gardiner Transfer Request Withdrawn
Reserve 'keeper John Gardiner has decided to withdraw the transfer request he submitted when Billy Thomson joined the club. This latest move followed a possible transfer to St. Johnstone. Alex. Rennie had agreed terms with United, but John decided to remain at Tannadice. The reason for him declining was that he wishes to remain a full-time player and consequently withdrew his request for a move. This has quickly meant re-instatement to the Reserve side and John has been in fine form and had an outstanding game in his last outing against Rangers Reserves.
