Albert Victor Aiken was a Northern Ireland football defender who played in the Football League for Brentford.[2]

Career[edit]

Aiken began his career in his native Northern Ireland with Glentoran, before joining English Division One side Brentford in a £1000 deal in the summer of 1937.[1] He failed to force centre half Joe James from his position and spent much of his time with the Bees in the reserve team.[1] Aiken made three league appearances for Brentford, at left and right half. Aiken left the club in 1939 to return to Northern Ireland and sign for Dundalk.[1]
