Jabba's Comments

Baird had a very brief spell at Leeds, but kept up an excellent goals to games ratio, but he failed to settle south of the border and moved back up to Aberdeen at the end of 1958. He subsequently played on the losing side in the 1959 Scottish Cup Final before moving on to Brechin and Highland League sides.

Shaun Baird says: This is my grandfather from my step father's side of the family. After football he moved to London as a bricklayer but moved back up to Aberdeen a few years back to be close to his family.

Robert Maxwell says: Hughie did his national service in the R.A.F. and I played football with and against him at R.A.F. Pitreavie. He was playing for Airdrie at the time (1952/53) and I remember him showing me the black, blue and yellow blotches on his ribs on the Monday after playing against Willie Woodburn (Rangers) on the Saturday. He played a good game.

Kenny Baird says: Hugh Baird is a cousin of my Dad's and used to pal around with my Uncle Adam in their youth. The family lost touch years ago so if anybody can update me on Hugh and the rest of the long lost Family I would be very grateful
