Blog - June 2018
It’s been a while since my last update in what has been a really difficult period for the club both on and off the park. The biggest disappointment was undoubtedly the way the league campaign ended with the team missing out on promotion.
Since Mike Martin was appointed Chairman we’ve seen the implementation of the widely reported “root & branch” review of everything that happens at the club and while we ...

Following on from United’s vastly successful Christmas foodbank appeal in which supporters donated a staggering 625 kilos of food and over £3,000 in cash, the Club will be hosting its second collection of the season this coming Saturday prior to the game versus Falkirk.
The campaign is carried again by Dundee United Community Trust, Arab

It is certainly good to see that Csaba has got the team playing well and so on the park there is certainly cause for optimism as we approach what will be one of the biggest games of the season on Friday night v St Mirren. The fans have already shown their backing for the team by snapping up all the advanced tickets and hopefully many more will be able to buy tickets on the day. Hopefully the away support will get to see a full 90 minutes of game this time unlike our aborted trip to Dumfries earl...

Thanks also to all the volunteers who were out in the cold and our friends up at Club 83, it wouldn't have happened without ...

In a break with tradition the Arab
TRUST Player of the Month Trophy for October won't be awarded to one player this month but to the whole youth squad (and friends) who defeated Linfield at Tannadice on 7th of October in the evening kick off.
The Irn Bru Cup isn't everyones cup of tea and as a club we don't want to be in it at all but you try telling some of the young guys who gave everything they had to win the game against Linfield that its not worth while. With only four of the 18 player squa...
Well as a supporter we have certainly seen the good and the bad side of the team over recent weeks with a real positive performance at East End Park, followed up by some encouraging signs from some of our younger players in the Linfield game which were then followed by 2 very poor performances against Livingston and Inverness. While it is never nice to see anybody losing their job Football is all about results on the park and particularly away from home we have not achieved the standards we woul...

TRUST Members Survey & Update
It is only the second week of August and already United have played 8 competitive games so far this season! It was great to start off by topping our league cup group, and while it was then disappointing to get knocked out in a derby in the grand scheme of things to start the league campaign with two victories is probably far more important. There is a real positivity about the team with many of the recent signings already making a big impact on the team, no...

By Peter Rundo
The hosts made the early running with Josh Donaldson brilliantly keeping out a Jack Paterson drive from 15 yards after just two minutes.
Five minutes later, Ali Coote was denied by home keeper Devlin Mackay at the other end.
A minute later Killie went close gain, Jack Whittaker’s first time effor...
With 42% of the vote, Frenchman, William E Edjenguélé has won October's Player of the Month.

DEV LEAGUE: UNITED 3 ABERDEEN 2October 18, 2016
The Young Terrors defeated their Aberdeen counterparts 3 – 2 in an exciting encounter at Glebe Park tonight courtesy of an Ali Coote hat trick.
By Peter Rundo
Indeed, the visitors recovered from Coote’s two first half goals to score a late equaliser, only to be denied at the death.
Four minutes had gone when Coote opened the scoring. Taking a Harvey Dailly pass, he bulleted a low shot into the bottom corner from the edge of the area...
DEV LEAGUE: INVERNESS CT 1 DUNDEE UNITED 1October 10, 2016
The Young Terrors, coming from behind and down to ten men, deservedly came away with a share of the spoils from Grant Street tonight.
Territorially, the visitors had by far the better of the first half, but failed to test the keeper.
Ironically, the home side came closest to scoring just before the interval with only Jamie Robson’s headed goal-line clearance keeping the sides level.
Making a bright start to the second period, C...
Congratulations to Dundee United WFC from all at the Arab

YOUNG TERRORS 4 RANGERS 0October 4, 2016
Goals by Appere, B Smith (pen), Donaldson and Garden saw United defeat Rangers 4-0 tonight in a Development fixture under the floodlights at Tannadice.
The visitors started the game better, but United looked the more incisive and that showed in the 22 minute when Appere slotted home to give United the lead. The high pressing from United continued to cause concern for the Rangers defence, and it was Appere again who was instrumental. His weaving run acro...

Just three minutes were on the clock when Tangerines fell behind. The defence failed to deal with a cross from the left and Liam Henderson bundled the ball home.
