Ally Donaldson was Dundee FC keeper for many, many years. The exact time span Ally was at Dens was - 1961 to 1972, followed by a 2nd stint from - 1977 to 1981, an incredible 16 years, which makes him one of the clubs longest serving players. He notched up a total of 408 games and played under 7 different managers, from Bob Shankly to Donald Mackay!
He was also a big favourite with the fans, and I can remember during the quieter moments of matches, the Derry would sing "Ally, Ally, give us a wave" and he would oblige!
Talking of Ally responding to fans, here he is answering questions sent into Shoot magazine in February 1971, giving his reply to what his greatest game was, how he deals with penalties and so on. Most of the qusetions were sent in from the Dundee area, so you may even spot someone you know!
