Used to see George during his Oldham days when he stopped in for a pint in the Junction in Whitefield. He was approachable and friendly and loved chatting to people about football. We used to ask him to relive some of the great goals he scored for Bury during their promotion season and he spoke fondly of the club and Les Shannon in particular.
My mother was cousin to Georges dad. I think I once played on his five a side team at Radcliffe Secondary school, but I was never a football lover. Hadn't seen him for a long time but went to my local dentist a few years ago and George was sat in the waiting room. I hadn't recognised him until he said hello to me. We only had chance for a brief chat before seeing the dentist. I think he's still living in the Radcliffe or Bury area.
