Inverness born inside left Tommy McDonald joined Inverness Thistle after World War One, transferring to Glasgow Rangers in 1920. In March 1921 he moved to St James’ Park and spent a decade at Newcastle United, making his Football League debut a few days later at Middlesbrough and scoring his first Newcastle goal at Blackburn Rovers 2 weeks later. He immediately established himself as a first choice forward for The Magpies, winning the FA Cup with them in 1924 when he scored 3 times on the road to Wembley which saw them beat Aston Villa 2-0 in the Final. He only missed one game, scoring a career best 23 goals, as Newcastle, by now with talisman Hughie Gallacher, won the Football League Championship in 1926-27, with only Gallacher outscoring him. He lost his place in 1930 and by the time he played his final game for The Toon at Grimsby Town in January 1931 he had scored 113 goals in 367 appearances. He joined York City in May 1931, scoring a dozen goals in 77 appearances in the early 1930’s, also playing for Goole Town and Usworth Colliery before hanging up his boots already aged over 40.
