Profile:
Full Name: Stuart Robert Kennedy

One of the Dons best captures in modern times. Kennedy was bought for 30,000 from Falkirk in 1976, with Jim Shirra going the other way, and went on to become one of the most popular players at Pittodrie. A fitness fanatic, his great attributes were his speed and power of recovery, which made him ideal for the demands of the game. Won winners medals in the League, Scottish and League Cups before injury ruled him out of the ECWC Final in Gothenburg. Was a non-playing substitute in the final, and it was that injury which finally ended his career. Capped 8 times for Scotland.
