George signed from New Stevenston United. He arrived at Tannadice in late 1946 and was a regular in the line up for more than seven years, forming part of United’s ‘Famous Five’ of Quinn, Grant, McKay, Dunsmore and Cruickshank in the early 1950s. In November 1954, he went to Falkirk in a swap deal that brought Willie Dunlop to United.
