The 2899 fans in attendance at Stade Marek Tuffner were roasting in the hot sun. Igor Wiechecki was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and Jerome Ludkin. A 4-5-1 alignment was the formation of choice for United. Lineup: Merkl - Beckenbauer, Richards, Parchewitz, Truchsess - Pérez Peña, Goltermann, Gatara, Seidberger, Puffky - Colby.

Anstruther had chosen a strategic 4-5-1 formation. The following players took the field: Giambruno - Brewis, Wallington, Peters, Blizzard - Robert, Downie, Freshwater, Divine, Bichler - Hellewell.

United fans held their breath as Hans Colby scampered down the left side. He successfully avoided all challenges and cracked home the shot for 1 - 0! Fritz Rehberger was called on to replace United's Nils Beckenbauer after 19 minutes following a nasty collision. Jack Brewis's lack of experience almost gave United a goal after 20 minutes, but the shot went right into the keeper's arms. The referee showed Anstruther's Fritz Bichler the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. United were forced into a substitution as Felix Merkl couldn't continue due to some rough treatment, forcing Wulf Diergardt to come in off the bench. Coming from the right, Hans-Rolf Goltermann almost managed to score another goal for United, but his header was tipped over the bar by the visitors' keeper. The teams went for the halftime break at 1 - 0. Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by United, with 52 percent of the ball.

Jack Brewis found it hard to catch his breath today in the stifling heat. Anstruther managed, after 66 minutes, to even the score at 1 - 1 with a lucky free kick by Stu Hellewell. Somehow the ball squirmed its way through the defensive wall! United took the lead 78 minutes in, as Iván Pérez Peña broke through on the left and put the 2 - 1 shot just beyond the reach of the outstretched keeper. The opposing supporters gave the referee an earful when he only gave Alan Downie from Anstruther a yellow card after a mistimed challenge from behind 78 minutes into the game. That was far too lenient! Hans-Rolf Goltermann was the unlucky victim and couldn't continue the game, so United's Gunter Stellmacher had to come off the bench. Anstruther had most of the ball, with 51 percent of possession.

Most important United player was Zorro Puffky. Fritz Rehberger on the other hand, had a terrible day. The most dominating Anstruther player was without a doubt Alan Downie. On the other hand, Jack Brewis's play was disheartening. The match ends 2 - 1.
