More about Ted MacDougall 

Edward John "Ted" MacDougall (born 8 January 1947 in Inverness) is a retired Scottish footballer who is currently coaching the Atlanta Silverbacks in the United States.

MacDougall was a prolific goalscorer who played for eight teams, scoring 256 goals in 535 League appearances and winning seven full international caps for Scotland.

In an FA Cup tie for Bournemouth in November 1971, he scored nine goals in an 11–0 win against Margate. He formed a successful striking partnership with Phil Boyer at four of his clubs.

In 1973, MacDougall moved to Norwich City, where he was reunited with John Bond, who had managed him at Bournemouth, together with several of his former Dean Court colleagues. He also linked up again with Phil Boyer, who had played alongside MacDougall at both Bournemouth and York.

At the end of the 1973–74 season, the Canaries were relegated to the Second Division, although in the following season they not only regained their First Division status but also reached the final of the League Cup.

In the 1975–76 season, Norwich were able to maintain their First Division place, with MacDougall contributing 23 goals, making him the division's top scorer. Highlights include two hat-tricks in the space of four games.
