Profile:
Irish born Falloon was perhaps one of the smallest central defenders ever in the Dons history. For what he lacked in height was compensated for with a fierce commitment and desire. Falloon was the Aberdeen captain in the 1937 Cup Final against Celtic and he also went on to gain full international honours for Ireland. In 1938 he was sold to Clyde. Died: Larne, 4th July 1963
