Alexander Downie Dawson (February 21, 1940 – July 17, 2020) was a Scottish football player.
Although born in Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire, Dawson started his career as a trainee with Manchester United under Matt Busby in the mid 1950s. He was given his First Division debut as a 17-year-old on 22 April 1957, when he scored in a 2-0 home win over Burnley in the First Division. He also found the net in United's next two league games against Cardiff City and West Bromwich Albion. These games came after United had sealed the First Division title for a second successive season.
He left United for Preston North End in 1961 after scoring 54 goals in all competitions for the Red Devils. At Preston, he became known as the "Black Prince of Deepdale" and featured in their 1964 FA Cup Final team. He scored in the final as Preston lost 3–2 to West Ham United.
