Profile:
Full name: Duncan Nichol Shearer.

A prolific marksman, signed by Willie Miller for £500,000 from Blackburn in 1992. The highlander scored twice on his Pittodrie debut, and went on to strike fear in many a Scottish defence. Scored 87 goals in his five seasons at Pittodrie, including the Dons second in the 1995 League Cup Final. Fulfilled a boyhood dream when he played for Scotland in 1994, and also scored against Finland to set the Scots on their way to Euro 96. Moved on by Roy Aitken in 1997 to Inverness CT where he teamed up in a coaching role with Steve Paterson. Was back at Pittodrie as assistant to Paterson after the departure of Ebbe Skovdahl. Later manager of Highland League outfit Buckie Thistle and then joined Inverness Caledonian Thistle as a development coach.
