A crowd of 6,141 turned out to see a special centenary celebration game against Manchester United. A very strong United team ran out 3-1 winners. All four goals were of quality with the best one on the night scored by Phil Hawker who following good work by David Kelly and Paul Jones, unleashed a terrific 25 yarder into the top corner.
A 25 yarder from Norman Whiteside sent United on their way . Gordon Strachen rounded Fred Barber for their second with Brian Mc Clair notching their third. Pictured are captains Graeme Forbes and Bryan Robson.
