Profile:
Tom was on the verge of emigrating to Australia when Bobby Calder knocked at his door and persuaded him to visit Pittodrie for a trial. He played two reserve matches before being drafted straight into the First Team against Rangers in August 1965, becoming an instant fixture from then on.
A key player in the Eddie Turnbull revolution at Pittodrie, Tommy gave sterling service to the Dons over a period of seven seasons before moving on to play at Falkirk and later Inverness Thistle.
