Just after the end of the Second World War, in 1945, Alex signed a three year contract with Aberdeen. He was studying at St Andrews University at the time and playing for Dundee Stobswell and therefore signed as an amateur to give him the freedom to maintain his academic focus - eventually gaining a BSC in Maths and Physics. he was also an all-rounder on track and field at St Andrews. The first season at the Club was a transitional one with Aberdeen playing in the Southern League and Alex hit the headlines in April 1946 by scoring two goals in the Southern League Cup semi-final replay victory over Airdrie. A couple of weeks later he played in the Final of the competition and the Dons triumphed 3-2 against Glasgow Rangers. Once football officially resumed after the war in 46/47 Alex went on to play 48 first team matches and score 13 goals for Aberdeen. In 1950 Alex was transferred to Falkirk whilst continuing to build a career in teaching in Dundee.

Full name: Alexander Anderson Kiddie.
