During the 100-year history of Aberdeen Football Club there have been many trophies, mementos and unique items of memorabilia inherited along the way. Unfortunately, the club don't have enough space to display this fascinating collection at the moment and so many fans are unaware of their existence. Each of the items has a story to tell and some are well known while others are a bit more obscure. All, of course, contribute to the rich history of Aberdeen Football Club.
Over time we hope to populate 'The Aberdeen Collection' section with a large selection of items. We have showcased a number of exhibits her to give you an idea of the treasure trove lurking in Pittodrie. We hope readers will find this fascinating and possibly get a further insight into the history of the club. In fact, one of the items on show here - the Changi Internment Camp Trophy - is a bit of a mystery to everyone at the club and if anyone can shed some light into its background we want to hear from you.
As the Dons' European Cup Winners Cup adventure continued, Lech Poznan arrived at Pittodrie for the Second Rpund, First Leg tie. As is traditional, they presented this Copper embossed tray depicting a view of Poznan as it was in 1740. Meauring approximately 24 inches by 12 inches it was placed on show in the boardroom for many years.
The match was fairly one-sided but the score was ket down to 2-0 with Mark McGhee and Peter Weir scoring. Two weeks later a Doug Bell goal cemented the victory and Aberdeen went forward to meet Bayern Munich in the Quster Final in March 1983.
