United Celebrate 50th Anniversary of Hampden Park

9th position was less than United had hoped for, particularly after a good win against Rangers in the League Cup.

A 5-1 defeat by Berwick Rangers in the Scottish Cup was a bad result in a lack lustre season.

High spot in the season was United being at Hampden Park to play Queen’s Park in the 50th anniversary of that great stadium on 31st October 1953. United at least won that match by 4-2.
