Biography

George signed for Stirling Albion from Bannockburn Amateurs in 1973, and spent eight year at Annfield, helping them win promotion to the First Division in 1977. The 28 year old full back, who could also play at centre-half, was signed by Jim McLean at the start of the 1981/82 season after appearing as a trialist in a pre-season friendly against St Johnstone, and he made his debut at the end of August, starting against Motherwell in a League Cup tie at Tannadice.

Brought in as back-up for the defensive positions, his only other first team involvement was as an unused substitute against Hibs in October, and a month later he left to join Dunfermline Athletic for around £6,000. He only appeared occasionally for Dunfermline during his two years there, and disappeared from the professional game in 1983.

    George signed for Stirling Albion from Bannockburn Amateurs in 1973, and spent eight year at Annfield, helping them win promotion to the First Division in 1977. The 28 year old full back, who could also play at centre-half, was signed by Jim McLean at the start of the 1981/82 season after appearing as a trialist in a pre-season friendly against St Johnstone, and he made his debut at the end of August, starting against Motherwell in a League Cup tie at Tannadice.

  • Going into the final group stage match having already clinched the top spot, manager Jim McLean changed things up a bit. After making his return to first team action as a substitute against Partick, Paul Hegarty was given a place in the starting eleven for the first time since the Scottish Cup Final in May. Recent new signing from Stirling Albion George Nicol made his first team debut. Billy Kirkwood, Graeme Payne and Willie Pettigrew were also in, with Frank Kopel, Derek Stark, Ian Phillip, Richard Gough and Davie Dodds dropping out. 19 year-old Alex Taylor was handed a place on the bench.
