Hugh McDonald enjoyed three separate spells with Arsenal, although he only made two appearances after first signing in 1906 as understudy to England goalkeeper Jimmy Ashcroft.

McDonald joined Brighton and Hove Albion at the end of the year before returning to the Club in 1908, missing just two games over the next two seasons as he established his first-team credentials.
