Profile:
Took time to establish him in the Dons first team after joining the club from East End in 1908. When he broke through, he was asked to play at left-back although he was essentially a right-back - he was unable to dispossess the ever-reliable Donald Colman, but did manage to bypass Jock Hume in the team. Following his stint with the Army in World War One, Hannah resumed his Aberdeen career in 1919, making 126 appearances for the Dons before moving to Peterhead as player/coach in 1921. Eventually moved to the USA where he remained involved in football. The Dons full back scored one goal for the Dons, a penalty against Partick at Pittodrie in 1912.
