Bio Extra

George was an amateur and enjoyed recognition as such gaining 7 Scottish Amateur international caps and playing for the British Olympic Association team on 4 occasions. All the more impressive considering that most international selections were dominated by Queen’s Park players at the time. He later went into refereeing and became the SFA’s director of referee development.
