Dons legend Neil Simpson turned 60 on Monday. The former midfielder and Gothenburg Great has spent many of those years involved with Aberdeen FC, working tirelessly on and off the field to help improve the club; – youth player, first team player, various roles in the AFC Community Trust, and Head of the AFC Youth Academy. His current position as Pathways Manager sees ‘Simmy’ looking after the Development and U18 players who are currently out on loan.

Last week U18 goalkeeper Jamie Shingler joined Highland League side Keith on an emergency deal until January. The following talented youngsters are also out playing for other teams: Connor Barron – Kelty Hearts, Mark Gallagher – Forfar Athletic, Jack MacIver – Huntly, Jack Milne – Brechin City, Kevin Hanratty – Fomartine United, Kieran Ngwenya – Kelty Hearts, Luke Turner – Cliftonville, Michael Ruth – Falkirk, Tyler Mykyta – Fomartine United and Ryan Duncan – Peterhead.

Can any of the players listed above follow in the footsteps of Jack MacKenzie who was at Forfar for the first half of last season?
