Profile:
Full name: David Thomson Robb.

Affectionately known as the "Brush" by the Dons support, Robb became a cult figure at Pittodrie with his unlimited enthusiasm. Although never blessed with an abundance of ability, Robb was an effective forward for the Dons and a prolific goal scorer. Played for Scotland on five occasions, all his caps coming in 1971, including a Wembley appearance against England. Scored the Dons winning goal in the 1976 League Cup Final and also played in the 1970 Final. Later played with Norwich and in the USA for Tampa Bay Rowdies amongst others.
