Profile:

Duncan McNicoll, who captains the Aberdeen League team this season, comes from a sure football nursery, Vale of Leven. To enumerate all the class men to have been reared down the Vale way would take some space. Suffice it to say that Duncan has proved a rare catch for Aberdeen and worthily upheld the honour of the club and the traditions of his calf-land. Since he started to play this season, Duncan has proved his worth as a player and captain. Mac has a thorough knowledge of the game and is equally at home at right or left back.

After his debut the Evening Express was enthusiastic: "Tall, and of magnificent build, McNicol took the eye at once, and the ease and grace with which he again and again took the ball from the feet of opponents and cleared his lines stamped him as a player of skill and resource. He will, I am sure, prove a tower of strength to the team."

Duncan McNicol, left-back, is the captain of the team, and this is his second season with his present masters. He has been an invaluable man both as a player and as a coach to his younger colleagues.
