During the 100-year history of Aberdeen Football Club there have been many trophies, mementos and unique items of memorabilia inherited along the way. Unfortunately the club don't have enough space to display this fascinating collection at the moment and so many fans are unaware of their existence. Each of the items has a story to tell and some are well known while others are a bit more obscure. All, of course, contribute to the rich history of Aberdeen Football Club.
Over time we hope to populate 'The Trophy Cabinet' section with a large selection of items. To launch we have showcased six exhibits to give you an idea of the treasure trove lurking in Pittodrie. We hope readers find this fascinating and possibly get a further insight into the history of the club. In fact one of the initial items is a bit of a mystery to everyone at the club and if anyone can shed some light into it's background we want to hear from you.
Of all of the many pennants that grace "The Aberdeen Collection" this one from Real Madrid has got to be the most famous. Handed over to Willie Miller in Gotheburg' pouring rain on the 11th of May 1983 the pennant is framed and remains on show in the Pittodrie boardroom to this day. remarkably, despite the weather the pennant survived in excellent condition and is one of the great mementos of Aberdeen's European Cup Winners Cup success.
