Bio

George Anderson

George McQueen Anderson... he was 20 years old when he moved to Canada, leaving Scotland on 1 June 1921 with the intent to find work (he sailed on the Metagama)... he was 74 years old when he passed away in Vancouver, BC on 25 May 1975... buried at Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver; cremated remains then disinterred in 1989 and brought to Occean View Cemetary in Burnaby... as noted in 1924 in an Australia program, “despite lack of weight, he plays full back at which position, because of his ability to kick with either foot, he is a stalwart”... a three-time Dominion of Canada Championship winner (1928, 1930, 1936)... as noted in 1936 in the Calgary Herald, he was “perhaps peerless in his position in the country”... in 1950, his 1929 team Westminster Royals was named Canadian soccer’s “Best in 50 Years” in a poll by The Canadian Press...
