Profile:
Patrick McCabe Buckley was a vital part of the Aberdeen side that took the League title in 1955. A lightning quick forward he joined Aberdeen from St. Johnstone, where he had scored 104 goals in 140 games, in 1952. The transfer fee was 7,500 of which Paddy pocketed 600. Capped for Scotland and the Scottish League during the Dons halcyon days of the mid-50's, Buckley's Aberdeen career was ended after a serious knee injury in 1957. He attempted a come-back with Inverness Caledonian in 1958 but sadly it did not work out for him.
