Wing half Frank Hill was the first Don honoured in the 1930s, when he was called up for a Scottish international against France in Paris on May 18 1930. Two former Aberdeen internationals, Alex Jackson and Alex Cheyne were also in the Scottish side that won 2-0 that day. Frank or "Tiger" as he became known
joined the Dons from his native Forfar in 1928. He had spent four years a Station Park before his move to Pittodrie but once in the top flight he quickly established himself as one of the finer exponents of wing half play in the country. Hill was a small, tenacious, combative left half with a tough tackling uncompromising
style. Together with Hugh McLaren and Jimmy Black he formed one of the most celebrated
half back combinations on the club's history.
Frank's influence on the Dons' title push during the 1929-30 season brought him to the attention of the national selectors and the game in Paris was his first reward. Two further caps followed
in October 1930 against Wales at Hampden and a goal-less draw in Belfast in February 1931. Later that year Frank was implicated along with 4 team mates in an alleged betting scandal at Pittodrie (denied by the players themselves) and his Aberdeen career was ended. He joined Arsenal for £3,000 in May 1932 and became an important part of the Arsenal side that dominated English football in the 1930s but he was never again afforded the chance to strut his stuff for Scotland.
