Where are Dundee United’s Scottish Cup winners 10 years later?

United 2010 Cup winners.
United 2010 Cup winners.

Sore heads, tangerine ticker tape, and an open-top bus parade.

That was the scene 10 years ago as Dundee United celebrated only their second-ever Scottish Cup following a 3-0 victory against Ross County.

Fast forward from 2010, the question is where are they now?

Today Courier Sport tells the tale since of the 15 Terrors Cup-winners.

Peter Houston

United’s cup-winning manager would go on to lead the club to two fourth-place and one sixth-place finish before leaving in 2013.

Houston would assist predecessor at Tannadice, Craig Levein, in his role as Scotland boss

Simultaneously, he took the Tangerines into Europe three seasons on the spin and remains, to this day, a revered figure among the United support.

He joined Falkirk in 2014 and led them to the 2015 Scottish Cup Final and twice brought them to the cusp of Premiership promotion before being sacked in 2017.

He is currently Scotland U/21 assistant manager and an opposition analyst for Celtic after a brief spell with Morton.

Dusan Pernis

The big Slovakian stopper enjoyed a further two seasons at Tannadice and became a fans’ favourite as the club forayed into the Europa League under Houston.

He left in 2012, seeking to remain in the UK, but ending up signing for Polish side Pogon Szczecin.

Pernis later had a spell in his homeland with Slovan Bratislava before time in Greece with Iraklis.

He is currently the vice-captain at Bulgarian side Beroe. Now 35, he has not been able to add to his six Slovakia caps – many of which he won while at United.

Mihael Kovacevic

The Swiss defender was a versatile option across the back line for first Craig Levein and then Houston, lining up at right-back for the 2010 final.

Kovacevic, however, lasted just the one more season with the Terrors – joining Croatian side NK Zadar in 2011.

He quickly returned to these shores, though, enjoying a two-year spell in the Highlands with Ross County from 2012-14.

Injuries dogged his career and, after time in Bulgaria, Hungary and back home in Switzerland, Kovacevic retired from football in 2017 aged 29.

Andy Webster

Andy Webster lifts the Cup.

Webster was a one-season wonder in the purest form at United – captaining them to the Scottish Cup while on loan from Rangers.

The conditions of his loan meant he was unable to play against the Gers in the quarter-finals but he headed home the Tangerines’ second in their last-four win over Raith Rovers.

He would return to Ibrox in a final attempt to break into the first team but to no avail.

Having spent years struggling for fitness and form, his time at Tannadice, by his own admission, revived Webster’s career.

He returned to Hearts to win the Scottish Cup for the third time in his career, had two seasons at Coventry and a couple more at St Mirren. He is now a coach in the Buddies’ academy set-up.

Garry Kenneth

Dundee born and bred, Kenneth was seen as a top prospect after winning the Scottish Cup with his boyhood club at the age of 22.

He would pick up two Scotland caps in the same year, marking Zlatan Ibrahimovic as the legendary striker led Sweden to a 3-0 win in Stockholm.

Rated at £2 million by United at one point, his career spiralled from there, joining Bristol Rovers in 2012 before spells in the lower reaches of the Scottish game with Brechin and Carnoustie Panmure.

Kenneth began to globetrot – plying his trade in Australia and Latvia – before turning out more locally for the likes of Forfar, Douglas Athletic and most recently Lochee United.

Sean Dillon

The Irish defender ensured his legend status at the club with the 2010 Scottish Cup – the highlight of 10 years at Tannadice.

A versatile player, he is well remembered by Arabs for being a whole-hearted, loyal servant to the Tangerines who enjoyed a testimonial against Hearts in 2017.

Things ended with pain for Dillon, unfortunately, suffering relegation under Mixu Paatelainen in 2016 before failing to gain promotion back to the Premiership the following season.

He would make 346 appearances in tangerine, many as captain, before joining Montrose that year.

He is currently a player-coach at the Gable Endies and has made 120 appearances for Stewart Petrie’s men.

Danny Swanson

The creative midfielder had another two seasons with United before heading down south to turn out for Peterborough United and Coventry City.

While at the Sky Blues, former St Johnstone boss Tommy Wright brought Swanson back into the Scottish game, signing him on loan until the end of the season.

He would enjoy a highly successful 2016-17 season at Saints between spells on both sides of the Edinburgh divide at Hearts and Hibs.

The lure of McDiarmid Park would remain for Swanson, once again signing on in 2018.

Prince Buaben

Ghanaian international, Buaben, would remain at Tannadice until 2011 before heading south for Watford and Carlisle United.

A return to Scotland in 2014 took in a loan spell at Partick Thistle, the 2015 Championship title and Premiership football with Hearts, and a brief spell at Falkirk in 2018. He is currently without a club.

The former Ajax youth product is most fondly-remembered by Arabs for his central-midfield partnership with the next man on this list.

Morgaro Gomis

Gomis would be the perfect foil for Buaben in the Tangerines’ engine-room as they motored to cup glory in 2010.

The Senegalese international would again cross paths with his former United teammate at Hearts, but not before leaving Tannadice for a crack at English football with Birmingham City in 2011.

Two years later he would return to United for a season under Jackie McNamara before switching tangerine for maroon and checking in at Tynecastle for their title win.

After spells with Motherwell, in Malaysia and Oman, Gomis would find his way back to Tannadice last year for the second-half of the 2018/19 season.

“Jimmy” is currently with League One side Falkirk.

Craig Conway

Goal hero Conway celebrates with the Cup at Tannadice.

Conway has gone down in Dundee United history after his double in the 3-0 final win over Ross County.

He would go on to enjoy a stellar career down south with Cardiff City, Brighton and Blackburn Rovers, picking up seven Scotland caps.

The former Ayr United man can currently be found tearing up English League Two defences on the wing for Salford City.

Jon Daly

The big Irish forward had a stellar career at Tannadice, capped by the 2010 cup win.

He would score 73 goals in 202 appearances, the second-highest in the club’s history for a non-British player, and also serve as captain.

He left in 2013 to join a lower league Rangers before switching Ibrox for Stark’s Park in 2015 for a season with Raith.

Daly joined Hearts in 2016 as a coach but left the Gorgie club’s back-room team in January and is currently out of the game.

David Goodwillie

Goodwillie opened the scoring in the 2010 Final, but his contribution that day has been overshadowed by subsequent events off the field.

After leaving United for Blackburn Rovers, he returned to Tannadice on loan in 2013 and had stints with Crystal Palace, Blackpool, Aberdeen, Ross County and Plymouth Argyle.

He is now at Clyde.


Keith Watson is currently with Ross County, Scott Robertson is part time with Forfar while coaching kids at Dundee, David Robertson retired from football.
