Possibly the first ever Aberdeen player to be classed as the complete player, certainly in the opinion of manager David Halliday. As a young forward Mills arrived at Pittodrie in 1932 and was almost immediately thrown into the Dons first team, a position he was to claim for six memorable years. Formed an almost telepathic partnership with Matt Armstrong as the Dons came so close to claiming their first major trophy in the 30's. Capped for Scotland, Mills was transferred to Huddersfield for a club record £6,500 in 1938.
