Name Peter Dougall
Arsenal Career 1933 - 1937
Position: Striker
Appearances 23 (23 starts, 0 as a sub)
Goals 5

His time on the continent was short-lived, however, and Dougall soon made the move to Highbury.

But he was never a first-team regular in just under four years at Highbury, playing 23 times and scoring five goals.

He played alongside the man he was once likened to as a rising star at Southampton, Alex James, but was never able to scale the same heights.

Injury cost Dougall the entire 1936/37 season and he joined Everton at the end of the campaign. He later played for Bury.
