Wednesday, August 30 – 1939
Dundee United made another addition last night. On the the previous evening they signed John Hutton, inside right, from Broughty Ex-Service, and this lad with a style not unlike a once familiar Bobby Gardiner, revealed neat touches at Dens Park. He must be given time to develop.
Second signature comes from Archie Macpherson, half back or inside forward of mature experience. No need to introduce Archie. He was an earlier favourite at Ibrox, have assisted Liverpool, Sheffield United, and Falkirk, and last season was with East Fife.
