Description

Donald McKay was born in Scotland and was a shipyard engineer who came to Southampton seeking work at the Woolston shipyards. He had been a regular member of the Woolston Works football team for several years before being signed by Southern League club Southampton St. Mary’s in the summer of 1896.

He made his debut for The Saints at The County Ground in the opening match of the 1896-97 season, a 4-1 victory over Chatham. He played at right back with his fellow Scotsmen James McKie at left back and William McMillan at right half. McKay retained his place for a further 7 League games, before being replaced by Samuel Meston, who had moved over from the left with McKie returning on the right, and spent the remainder of the season in the reserves. The Saints won the first nine games of the season and finished unbeaten after twenty matches, thus claiming the Southern League title for the first time.
