Profile:
Born in Oldmachar, Aberdeen 1882 Died in Sunderland 26th September 1920

"Harry Low, left-half, like his vis--vis on the right, comes of a family of players, and has a future before him."

Source:Aberdeen Evening Gazette 26th November 1904

Henry's brothers were John, the eldest, who played at centre half for Orion, and Wilf who arrived at Pittodrie at the start of the 1904/05 season. Just before the end of the 1906-1907season, Henry was expected to re-sign for Aberdeen, but on 6th May 1907 the Aberdeen Daily Journal reported that he had signed for Sunderland for an undisclosed but substantial fee. Later estimated at 400 - a huge sum at that time.

Death of a Prominent Player - Regret was expressed in football circles in Aberdeen yesterday when it became known that Henry Low, the well-known Anglo-Scot football player, and former member of the Aberdeen team, had died on Sunday at his home near Sunderland. Low, who was a native of Fraserburgh, succumbed to pneumonia, following a brief illness. He was about 38 years of age.
