Profile:

Full name: Donald Kenneth James Emery.

Arrived at Pittodrie from Swindon in part exchange for Andy Cowie. Was renowned for a venomous shot and a fearsome penalty kick expert. Emery was a colossal figure and was a real favourite at Pittodrie. Sometimes used as an emergency centre forward, Welsh born Emery joined East Fife and also returned to Pittodrie in 1969 in an attempt to unseat the Pittodrie board along with Tony Harris and others.

Died - 19th November 1993.
