Profile:
Goalkeeper Blackwell arrived at Pittodrie in 1921 from Scunthorpe. Famed for playing in the Dons record score of 13-0 against Peterhead in 1923, Blackwell was reported to have watched proceedings whilst wearing an overcoat [see match report for 10th February 1923] and allegedly sheltered under an umbrella. Blackwell went on to play for Orient and Preston after leaving the Dons in 1930.
