Bert MacLachlan's Pittodrie career was interrupted by the First World War in 1916 after he had joined the Dons from Aston Villa two years previously. A strong left half who was made captain in 1919, MacLachlan was a colossus in the Aberdeen side and after representing the Scottish League, he moved to Hearts in 1927. His one appearance in season 1916-1917 was whilst he was on furlough from the Forces where he served as a gunner.

IN season 1926-27 he suffered a serious groin injury which led to him missing the last few games of the season and ultimately he was released as it was thought he might not recover. However, at the beginning of the following season he was back training at Pittodrie and it was thought he would re-join the club but in early September 1927 he signed for Hearts,

Older Brother of Fred. Another Brother (John) played for Partick Thistle, Dundee and Aston Villa.

In 1945 Bert returned to Aberdeen to live.

Full name: Albert James MacLachlan Died - Edinburgh 1956
