Profile:
Having played in a Pittodrie reserve match against Deveronvale on the 10th of October 1944, Blantyre Celtic player Pat McKenna was signed by the Dons the week afeter after he had excelled against Dunfermline Athletic. He had played for Glasgow juvenile team Lambhill United before joining the Blantyre club.
A diminutive right back, made up for what he lacked in height with his lightning speed. Glasgow born, McKenna was part of the Dons Cup winning sides of 1946 and 1947. In his six seasons at Pittodrie McKenna was a regular first team player before struggling to keep his first team position in the early 50's. Transferred to Plymouth in 1952 but only played in one senior match and moved on to St Johnstone in the following season but was not able to make his mark and appeared only three times. Ran the Marine Hotel in Muchalls after ending his playing career.

Died in Aberdeen, 16th November 1995.
