Hamilton was a record Dons signing when he was transferred to Pittodrie from Queen of the South for £3,000 in 1938. Made an immediate impact in the Dons side that was to break up for the Second World War.
During the years of conflict George did manage to make some appearances for the Pittodire outfit. Whilst still serving in the Army and awaiting demob, George submitted a transfer request, but happily he withdrew it in time to play against Queen's Park on 25th December 1945.
On resumption of his Aberdeen career after the hostilities had ceased, "Gentleman George" helped the Dons to their first major trophy success with the 1946 League Cup and the Scottish Cup in 1947. Hamilton was a top class forward with superb heading ability, and also represented Scotland, gaining 5 caps. Scored a hat trick against Belgium in 1951. Whilst he was still playing, George also ran a Newsagent's shop in Aberdeen. Retired in 1955 after a short spell with Hamilton.

Whilst with the club, George lived at 11 Cairnfield Place between 1948 and 1955.

George Hamilton passed away in an Aberdeen nursing home on 22nd May 2001.
