Profile:
The powerful Thomson was an outstanding left half who joined the Dons from St Roch's in 1932. Thomson was a vital part of the Dons side of the 30's that were the first Aberdeen team to make a real impression in the Scottish game, and were unfortunate not to take the title in 1936 and the Scottish Cup the following year. Played almost 250 games for the Dons. His Aberdeen career was effectively finished by the outbreak of War in 1939 although he did make a number of wartime appearances for Aberdeen, particularly in season 1943-44.
