Profile:
A big favourite at Pittodrie, Dod was a strapping pivot whom when he went to play in England was described as being "particularly Scottish in style and movement".
In the 1914-1918 war he seved in France with the 15th Division

Brewster was transferred to Everton in January 1920 for what was then a record fee for a Scottish player. Estimates of the fee varied between 1500 and (more likely) 2400 of which Brewster was paid 500. He later moved to Wolverhampton Wanders and then Lovell's Athletic and Wallasy United.

After a spell playing for Brooklands Athletic in New York in 1924, he returned to Scotland to become player/manager at Inverness Caledonian.
