John Robertson
John Robertson Known as "Tinny" Robertson because of his business of Tinsmith and Can Manufacturer, Robertson was born in Aberdeen in 1864 and served his time as a tinsmith in the Netherkirkgate before he moved to work in London where he became one of the founding members of Milwall FC.
Returning to Aberdeen in 1895, he set up a business that flourished and expended, especially during the 1914-18 war years. In 1914, Robertson joined the board at Pittodrie and did a lot of work in helping with the development of football locally in the minor grades. He also played a key role in seeing through many ground improvements at Pittodrie, many of which can still be seen almost a hundred years later.
In July 1930, "Tinny" was appointed as Chairman of Aberdeen FC and served in this capacity until his death at the age of 71 in 1935.
In May 2010, Clark Robertson, a great nephew of the former chairman, made his debut at right back for the Dons, thus perpetuating the family connection to the Club.
