Stewart, George A Hibernian Fri 29 Aug 1947

Edinburgh born, George started his career with Tynecastle Boys Club then joined Dundee in 1964. His commanding displays won a band of admirers and it was no surprise when Hibernian finally lured him to Easter Road in 1976.

His move to Hibs coincided with Dundeeā€™s slip from the Premier League. A move to Edinburgh was ideal as he lived in the city and had a dry-cleaning business in Gorgie. He came to Hibs as a 28 year old and formed a wonderful partnership in defence with firstly John Blackley and then Gordon Rae.
