Profile:

Aberdeen have picked up a smart youngster in "Dick" Donald, the clever inside right of the St Nicholas club. Built on the right lines, Donald, with the proper nursing, should do well. He is only 17 years of age and is 5 ft. 10 1/2 in. in height. St Nicholas officials and players will miss him.
