Profile:
Welshman Beynon joined Aberdeen in 1932 from Doncaster and developed in to a quick winger and firm favourite at Pittodrie.

Benyon's Progress

Benyon, the Dons' outside right, who was taken to the Aberdeen Royal Infirmary after the match with Celtic at Pittodrie on Saturday suffering from concussion, is making good progress towards recovery. The report from the Infirmary last night was to the effect that he was getting along very nicely.

Played in the epic 1937 Cup Final and provided the cross for Armstrong's goal. Tragedy struck Beynon when he was taken ill on the Dons tour of South Africa weeks after the Final. Beynon went down with Peritonitis and died in Johannesburg on 26th June 1937.

Full name: John Alfred Beynon.
