Dundee United Vintage 1962-87

ScotlandThis latest post in our regular Vintage series features a collection of retro Dundee United player and team images. Most originate from the 1960s and 1970s, a transformative era for the club that began with the appointment of Jerry Kerr as manager 1959. Kerr would  turn United into a serious top-flight club and by 1966 the Tannadice side was even playing in European competition for the first time – and beating Barcelona into the bargain.

Jim McLean’s long reign started in 1971 and his influence would be profound. A decade later United had moved to a different level altogether and the club’s supporters were revelling in major trophy success for the first time in the club’s history.

  1. Good to see vintage photos of United,but why is there never any individual photos of local players from that era,ie,Jimmy Briggs captain during the first Barcelona victory, etc

  2. Tommy Neilson passed away this morning from pancreatic cancer. Was part of Dundee united team from 1959-1968. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.
