Profile:
Joined up at Pittodrie in 1960, having made two trial appearances early in the 1960-1961 season, and after a spell in the reserves, made the left back spot virtually his own during the 60's. A consistent performer, Shewan was a tough competitor, with a high level of consistency and was rarely injured. Played for the Dons on 300 occasions, and was also in the team that lost out to Celtic in the 1967 Cup final. Moved to Australia for a short spell in 1969 before returning to play for Elgin City.
Ally was an active committee member of the AFC Former Players Assocoation and retired as an AFC Ambassador on 16th May 2016.
