Signed from Annbank United in 1947, Glen went down in the history of Aberdeen as the player who scored the vital goal that clinched the Dons first championship in 1955. His penalty against Clyde at Shawfield sparked wild celebrations in Aberdeen, as the Dons were proud Champions. Converted into an elegant wing-half, Glen was capped for Scotland and also represented the Scottish League on six occasions. After leaving the Army, Archie, who was a science graduate of Aberdeen University, had made the left half position his own and was made club captain in 1956. Throughout his career he maintained a very high standard of performance and was an excellent tackler. Retired in 1960.

Died - Aberdeen, 30th August 1998
