Long before he played his first hame for the Dons, he was a ballboy at Pittdorie, but Gothenburg goal hero John Hewitt will forever have his name etched in the history of Aberdeen FC because he scored the Dons goal of the century with his extra time header against Real Madrid in 1983 that meant the Dons had won the European Cup Winners Cup. Often used a substitute, Hewitt had the knack of scoring important goals for the club, including the quickest Scottish Cup goal on record. His 9-second goal against Motherwell in the Cup at Fir Park in 1982 set the Dons on a roller coaster ride that will never be forgotten.

After leaving the Dons in 1989, John played for several clubs, including Celtic and St Mirren, and later had a spell as player/manager of Dundalk.
