Alan McKay

Glasgow born Alan McKay joined Motherwell in 1967 coming straight from Third Lanark after the demise of the Cathkin Park side, he would actually have the distinction of being the last player to captain the Hi Hi’s. Capable of playing other as a left back or wing half, Alan made his debut in claret and amber in a 2-2 draw against Clyde in the League Cup group stages, he would need to wait a month later to make his league bow the coming in a 1-2 reversal at the hands of Morton.

The 1967/68 season was one rather to forget with everyone associated at Fir Park as the side would endure a poor season finishing second bottom and slipping to relegation. McKay would feature heavily in the opening few months of the 1968/69 season but would ultimately lose his place and move onto Dumbarton, that season of course would see the emergence of legendary full back Joe Wark. The club would achieve immediate promotion back to Division One with Alan playing at least a small part in that. He made 45 appearances for the club in all competitions but failed to get on the scoresheet.

During his playing days, Alan worked in insurance and upon retiring from the game he would found his own company as well as being a coach with Dumbarton.
