One legacy that emerged from the Aberdeen FC Centenary year in 2003 was the formation of the Aberdeen FC Former Players association. While several clubs particularly in England have developed similar schemes, the Aberdeen Association grew in its first year, with almost 200 members made up of players who have played for the Dons in the past. These players the clubs feels still have an important role to play and they can benefit from still being part of Aberdeen Football Club.

The association was the brainchild of AFC Heritage Trust Secretary Chris Gavin and was established with a working committee headed up by former Aberdeen FC player Duncan Davidson as Chairman supported by former Aberdeen FC players Jimmy Wilson and Ally Shewan. A new committee was formed in March 2018 and is made up of former Aberdeen FC players Walker McCall, Rob McRobb and Jim Whyte, AFC Heritage Trust trustees Derek Giles and Stewart Eaton. 

The Aberdeen FC Former Players association was formed on 26th November 2003, and membership remains open to all former Aberdeen FC players.
