Bio Extra

George was probably a guest or a trialist, and had an exceedingly fruitful couple of weeks as a Jag. Thistle were regular invitees to the end-of-season Greenock Charity Cup organised by Morton, and George played in 3 games for the Jags at Cappielow in the May 1893 event. Dykebar were eliminated at the second attempt on the 20th May, with George netting a brace in the 6-0 win. He earned himself a very handsome winners medal 7 days later as Thistle defeated the host club, Morton, by 7 goals to 4 in an entertaining finale.

A prominent outside left in the mid 1890s, George won promotion with Clyde in 1893-94 and turned out for them in the first half of their top-flight campaign the following season. He made the switch to Linthouse in January 1895 and played with them until 1897, with a 5 month spell at St Mirren from July 1895 in-between.
