Profile:

ANOTHER NEW PLAYER FOR PITTODRIE.

Burke From Clyde.

Last night Mr Travers, the manager of the Aberdeen Football Club, secured the signature of James Burke, an outside right.
Burke, who was with Clyde during the latter part of last season, was previously with Glasgow Ashfield, and was one of the much-sought-after ex-intermediate players who was reinstated the S.F.A.
He is versatile player, who is equally at home in the forward or half back lines, but is best known as an outside right. He was on Clyde's open-to-transfer list.
