Aberdeen Vintage 1964-71

ScotlandIn honour of their first trophy win in 19 years, Aberdeen become the latest club to feature in our regular Vintage series. This first Dons post collects up retro player and team images from the mid 1960s through to the early 1970s.

The 64-71 period we cover here dovetails neatly with Eddie Turnbull’s time in charge at Pittodrie. Aberdeen had stagnated after the successes of the immediate post war years under club legend Dave Halliday and it took Turnbull’s appointment in 1965 to revitalise them. He led the club to two Scottish Cup Finals against Celtic, one lost in 1967 and the other won in 1970. The following year would be Turnbull’s last in charge and his open and attractive side finished runners-up to Celtic after looking likely champions for most of the campaign.
