Club career[edit]

Aberdeen[edit]

Low made his first team debut for Aberdeen as a substitute on 27 January 2010, against Heart of Midlothian. Aberdeen won the game 3–0.[1]

On 30 August 2011, Low went on loan to Forfar Athletic until January.[2] After impressing on loan, he went back to Forfar until the end of the 2011–12 season. During his time at Forfar, Low was voted Supporter's Player of the Year and Young Sky Blues Player of the Year.[3] On 18 October 2012, Low joined Alloa Athletic on loan initially for a month.[4] The loan was eventually extended until January before he was recalled by Aberdeen.

On 29 December 2013, he scored his first goal for Aberdeen, in a 1–0 win against Ross County.[5] In the Scottish League Cup final against Inverness Caledonian Thistle on 16 March 2014, Low came off the bench in the 70th minute and scored Aberdeen's second penalty in the penalty shoot out.[6] On 15 May 2014, Low signed a new one-year contract with Aberdeen.[7]

Dundee[edit]

On 20 April 2015, Low signed a pre-contract agreement to join Dundee on a three-year deal from the start of the 2015–16 season.[8][9]

Low was loaned to Irish club Derry City in January 2017.[10] In June 2017, Low's loan deal was extended until the end of the 2017 season[11] and he returned to Dundee in January 2018.[12] Low returned to Derry on 31 January.[13]
