Profile:
A player of great speed, with the dash typical of English centre-forwards, Samuel G. Cail came to Pittodrie for an undisclosed fee, but it was reported as being the highest yet paid by the club for a forward.

During the First World War, Cail played for the club but was listed in match reports in 1915 as "Private Cail."
