Buchan, George George was a great player for Bury having good skills as a creative attacking midfielder. Bury had a very exciting team during that era in the 70’s and George was very much a part of that

Buchan, George George was a Teacher at my Senior School in Oldham (Grange). I didn't have him as one of my teachers but, being a Man Utd fan, I spoke to him about Utd and his Brother Martin. He was a gorgeous looking man at the time.

Buchan, George Mr Buchan was one of my teachers and head of year at Grange school. I have great memories of one particular history lesson where he walloped me on the back with a text book for "resting my eyes" 😂...and his continual stories of him and his brother Martin when they were famous footballers.
