Profile:
Falkirk born George Mulhall passed away in April 2018 at the age of 81. He had signed for the Dons from Kilsyth Rangers in 1953, but had to be patient before breaking into the first team as he was understudy to the speedy Jack Hather. He played a starring role in the reserve team that won a Reserve League and Second Eleven Cup double in season 1954-1955. It was not until after the Dons had won the championship in 1955 that Mulhall made his mark, and he developed into a quick left winger who scored more than his fair share of goals. Capped for Scotland in 1959, Mulhall, having played 150 first team games during which he scored 42 goals, was tempted south in September 1962, when he joined Sunderland for 22,000. Following a spell in South Africa, George returned to Britain to take on various coaching roles, and he made a successful return to the English League managing Halifax Town, Bradford City and Bolton Wanderers then Halifax Town again. George is fondly remembered by the generation of Dons' fans who saw him ply his trade at Pittodrie Park.

In armed forces at start of season 1959-60.

"A dangerous winger possessing speed and craft."

Died - Huddersfield Royal Infirmary, 29th April 2018
