Profile:
Full name: John Grandison Allister.

Part of the Aberdeen side that won the title in 1955 and alongside Young and Glen he formed part of a formidable half back line. A competitive player signed from Chelsea in 1952.

He was turned done and went on to play many more games for the Dons.
Before his transfer to Chesterfield in June 1958, Allister went on to become a League and League Cup winner during his spell at Pittodrie.
