Murdoch MacFarlance Dickie (born 28 December 1919) was a Scottish footballer who played for Crewe Alexandra, Port Vale, Guildford City, Chelsea, and Bournemouth & Boscombe Athletic.

Playing career[edit]

Dickie played for Crewe Alexandra before joining Port Vale in May 1939.[1] He played two league games, but had his contract cancelled in December 1939.[1] After guesting for Walsall during the war he rejoined Vale in October 1944.[1] He played three war league matches before moving on to Guildford City, probably in the autumn of 1945.[1] He played one First Division game for Billy Birrell's Chelsea in 1946–47. He then left Stamford Bridge, and signed with Bournemouth & Boscombe Athletic. He scored twice in 16 league games in 1947–48, helping Harry Lowe's "Cherries" to a second-place finish in the Third Division South. Dickie then left both Dean Court and the Football League.
