Profile:
Full name: Andrew David Cowie.

During the Second World War, with players of all clubs away from home base, it was not unusual for clubs to invite them to play as a guest wherever they might be based. York City wanted to field Andy at one point, but Aberdeen asked for 5,000 insurance and York promptly lost interest.

Died in Inverness, 19th January 1972.
