Profile:
Left-winger Hather soon found himself in the Dons first team after his arrival at the end of 1948. The English born flier went on become a real asset for the Dons, and was aptly called "The Hare." Was a vital part of the Dons 1955 League championship side and after taking over from Tommy Pearson. In May 1953 he played 15 minutes of a Dewar Shield match against Dundee United without his left boot. Played in the winning Dons side that took the League Cup back to Pittodrie in 1956, but was to taste disappointment in three Scottish Cup Finals in the 50's.
