Profile:
Joe O'Reilly joined Aberdeen in 1932 from Irish side Brideville in the immediate aftermath of the 'Great Mystery' that rocked Pittodrie to the core in November 1931. O'Reilly took his chance in the Aberdeen first team and played more than 40 matches for the Dons as well as establishing himself in the Ireland side. O'Reilly went on win 20 international caps, the first of which came against the Netherlands in a 2-0 win in May 1932. After two years at Pittodrie O'Reilly moved back to his native Brideville after failing to cement a right-half place in the Aberdeen side. It was Aberdeen captain Bob Fraser who kept O'Reilly on the sidelines. In 1935 O'Reilly transferred to St James Gate in Dublin and the last of his caps came in a 1-1 draw with Germany in 1939.
