Profile:
The value of summer tours during that period was proved invaluable, as it was on a tour of South Africa in 1937 that the Dons party spotted Williams. The flying winger was soon on his way to Pittodrie, sailing north on the Dunnotar Castle, and he gained notoriety when he scored the Dons winner in the 1947 Scottish Cup Final. Played for Scotland during the War although he was South African and moved to Plymouth Argle in 1949 then Dundee in 1950.

Full name: Alfred Stanley Williams, died in Johannesburg 12th June 2007
