Patrick McCabe Buckley was a vital part of the Aberdeen side that took the League title in 1955. A lightning quick forward he joined Aberdeen from St. Johnstone, where he had scored 104 goals in 140 games, in 1952. The transfer fee was £7,500 of which Paddy pocketed £600. Capped for Scotland and the Scottish League during the Dons halcyon days of the mid-50's, Buckley's Aberdeen career was ended after a serious knee injury in 1957. He attempted a come-back with Inverness Caledonian in 1958 but sadly it did not work out for him.
