Profile:
The original Great Dane joined the Dons in 1968 after being spotted playing in America, following in the footsteps of Jens Petersen. Boel became a cult hero at Pittodrie a rugged and powerful full back who went on to play his part in the Dons successful 1970 Cup side.
A strong willed ndividual, Henning walked out on the club on Thursday the 26th of October 1972 and was consequently suspended. However, he returned on the 19th of March 1973 and was back playing by the 14th of April.
A Danish international, Boel's Aberdeen career was effectively ended after sustaining a serious injury against BMG in Germany in 1972.

He played in a friendly match for Brighton and Hove Albion against Stoke City in February 1973 while out on loan.
