Norman Davidson Obituary, Death – Former Aberdeen player Norman Davidson died over the weekend. Between the years 1955 and 1960, Norrie was a member of the Aberdeen team and took part in 146 matches. Norrie was born in Kintore. Over the course of that time, he scored 84 goals, which places him in twentieth place all-time among goal scorers. He is currently ranked ninth in the League Cup scoring charts and seventh in the Scottish Cup scoring charts thanks to his 16 goals scored in each competition.
Norrie led his team to victory in the 1960 Scottish Cup match against Brechin City by scoring five goals for them. The goals that he scored against Rangers before the end of the 1958–1959 season, when Aberdeen were in danger of being relegated, were among his most important goals to score. The two goals that he scored for Aberdeen on the last day of the season at Ibrox were the reason that they were able to avoid finishing the season in last place.
The entire team here at AFC would like to express our most sincere condolences to Norman’s family and friends on their recent loss. Derek Giles, who works for the AFC Heritage Trust, has many happy recollections of Pittodrie. The loon of Kintore, Norrie Davidson, has no fear, moved at the speed of light, and was a dangerous weapon in the air. Because he longed to be back in Chelsea, he uprooted his life and went to the Northeast from Chelsea.
As a result of a brief relocation to Fraserburgh, the junior football program was unable to be reestablished. In February of 1955, Inverurie Locos considered his previous scoring record before making the choice to recommend that Aberdeen contract him. In the game that they played against St. Mirren in October 1955, Norrie took the place of Paddy Buckley as a substitute.
Willie Telfer presented him with a challenge in his very first match, and he struggled mightily. The effort that Norrie delivered in was quite good, and she scored twice. At the 14 minute mark of the second half, Mulhall was victorious over Mallan and made the discovery of Yorston. The opportunity presented by the through ball that was supplied by the inside right was quickly seized by Davidson. As a direct result of MacFarlane’s injury, Norrie was given a second and potentially decisive chance.
