Profile:
Full name: Thomas Brooks Craig.

Farmed out to Banks o Dee "A" in his first season with the Dons. He became the first Scottish teenager to be transferred for a six-figure fee when he joined Sheffield Wednesday for 100,000 in 1969. A rare talent that was only seen in his formative years at Pittodrie, Craig went on to play for Newcastle Utd, Aston Villa and Swansea. Capped for Scotland before moving into coaching, Craig was assistant manager at Pittodrie under Roy Aitken.
