Profile:
The diminutive McKenna joined the Dons in 1944, but for what he lacked in height was compensated by 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.
