Between 1948 and 1959 Alan Boyd played for Queen’s Park, Aberdeen and East Fife. He scored 31 goals in 145 Scottish League games, most of them coming during his eight season spell at Aberdeen when the Dons won their first Scottish League title in 1954-55 although Alan didnít play that season. He also missed out on their Scottish League Cup win in 1955. In all games during his time at Pittodrie, Boyd played 88 games and scored 26 goals from his outside-right position.
