    The Great Mystery
    Dave Galloway along with, Frank Hill, Hugh McLaren and Jimmy Black were implacated along with Benny Yorston, the following is from Jack Webster.

    Yorston was one of five Aberdeen players dropped after a 1-1 draw with Kilmarnock later that year. At the time, the reasons were not clear, but the club's official history claims that several players had been involved in a betting scandal. No players were ever charged with any offence, but none of them ever played for Aberdeen again.

    Jack Webster

    "When I tracked him down to that Chelsea flat, shortly before his death in 1977, Benny denied all knowledge of corruption - and even claimed to have no memory of the mystery which led to his departure from Aberdeen."

  • 2003

    "From the Pittodrie dressing room of the time I gained the gist of what happened. A number of players decided to place fixed-odds bets with Aberdeen bookmaker Will Jamieson, on the basis that the Dons would be drawing at half-time and winning at full-time. Clearly, they could have some say in these matters and even if they hoped to win the match, the attempt to arrange the half-time draw was in itself a corruption."
