The London Dons (Rob Roy Reds) are on the hunt again to recruit some more high quality players for this season's league and cup run-in.
The team, founded in 2000, has won the London Supporters League Division 1 (APFSCIL) for the last two years, and boasts a number of ex-Highland League, Junior, University and Amateur players - all Dons fans who find themselves in London. The second team gained promotion last season and are competing well in the top division.
The team plays on Sunday afternoons in West London, playing against teams like Rangers, Celtic, Dundee Utd, Hibs, Middlesbrough and Sunderland in a very competitive ex-pat league.
The club also competes in the London FA Cup, as well as having a great social scene involving Sunday pints watching the late EPL game, golf days as well as meeting at the Rob Roy Bar in Paddington for the Dons live matches.
The first team took delivery of a brand new kit last week - the same design as the current Aberdeen FC first team kit but sponsored by Fullers Brewery and London Pride beer. The kit seen in the photo was worn for the first time on last Sunday as Aberdeen kicked off 2012 with a fine 5-0 demolition of Birmingham City. Ewan Rossiter grabbbed a hat-trick and Kev McAuley and Mikey Ross were also on target.
Aberdeen has two teams playing the Association of Provincial Supporters Clubs leagues (APFSCIL) in London on Sunday afternoons. They are always looking for quality footballers to join the set-up, so if you are interested or know of anyone who may be that is based in London, contact them via email on firstname.lastname@example.org or their Facebook site on www.facebook.com/robroyreds
*In the London Supporters League. And they're probably better than West Ham too.
