Douglas Haigh "Doug" Newlands (29 October 1931 – 11 April 2011) was a Scottish professional association footballer who played as a winger.[1]

Career[edit]

Newlands was born in Edinburgh and began his career with Aberdeen.[1] He had a productive loan spell with St. Johnstone which prompted top-flight English club Burnley to sign Newlands in 1954.[1] He had to bide his time to force himself into the starting eleven at Turf Moor with Billy Gray occupying the number 7. He became a regular in 1956–57 and 1957–58 before the emergence of John Connelly signalled the end of Newlands' time at Burnley.[2] He joined Stoke City and made an instant impact scoring on his debut against Sunderland.[1] It was to be just a one season stay at Stoke for Newlands and after the end of the 1959–60 season he returned to St. Johnstone.[1] He later played for Airdrieonians and Forfar Athletic.
