Full name: Alexander Skinner Jackson.

One of the "Wembley Wizards" Jackson was a winger with a rare talent, never before had the Aberdeen support seen. Was plucked from the obscurity of America by former Don Jock Hume, who recommended him to Aberdeen. Gained his first cap at the age of 19, and was snapped up by Huddersfield before he was twenty for a record £5,000 fee in early May 1925, after only one superb season at Pittodrie. At the time of his move, the chairman stated at the club AGM that Alex had been driven away by adverse criticism of his play by the press and supporters. [Ref: Press & Journal, 4th July 1925]

Later moved to Chelsea for a fee of £8,500 and moved to France to play for Nice. Tragically died in a road accident in 1946 while serving with the Army, in the Royal Pioneer Corps - in Egypt.

Brother of Wattie Jackson.
