One of the clutch of Fergie's rising young stars that went on to greatness with the Dons in Gothenburg. Scored the opening goal in the 1983 ECWC Final against real Madrid and was also on target in many big Aberdeen games. Was particularly renowned for his ability to "hang in the air" when going for high balls. Signed a deal to move to Metz in France which led to his being left out of the Dons 1986 Cup Final side.

Back injuries hampered Black's career after leaving the Dons and he was forced to give up playing professionally in his late twenties. Highly regarded as a coach, he was manager at Motherwell and Coventry City as well as being assistant at several other clubs.
