DOUG HOUSTON - 1962 to 1973

Captain sensible, Doug Houston, is one of the Dees longest serving players in their 115 year history. He was at Dens from 1962 to 1973 and played a total of 341 full games. In his latter years he became Dundee's regular captain. Although he played midfield he did manage to bang in a few goals from time to time, including scoring a goal in his final match for the club at Dens against Hearts in the last game of the season, April 73.
The above photo shows him leading the team out at Tynecastle in 1971, a game that ended in a 0-0 stalemate.

A fine player who seemed to improve with age and played in every position for Dundee except goal.
