Biography


Alec Caldwell joined Dundee straight from school in 1973 and made his debut against Morton in April 1974, playing regularly in central defence until the end of the seventies.

Alec was considered a good competitor and excellent marker. After making 160 appearances and scoring five times, he was released as the club were relegated in May 1980 just as Donald Mackay took charge.

It was far from the end of his career though because he immediately joined St Johnstone and two seasons later captained them to the First Division title. Injuries, however, severely curtailed his appearances in the Premier division. Although most of his career was spent in central defence at Perth, he appeared in the full-back berth on a number of occasions.

Back in the First Division, the player had a dispute with the club which saw him head to Forfar and ultimately the Highland League before going into coaching, having made 165 appearances and scoring 8 goals in his five years at Muirton Park.
