George Lindsay

George LindsayPrior to joining Motherwell, George Lindsay had played for Carluke Juniors for 6 months, in that spell he had won many admirers. As a Wishaw Academy schoolboy he had trained at Fir Park on many occasions so it was no real surprise when he was eventually snapped up. He enjoyed quite a spectacular debut for the club scoring in a league match on 15th October 1960 against Third Lanark, despite making an immediate impression his efforts could not prevent the side falling to a 4-5 defeat. He had pace in abundance and tricky which excited the fans, George was an old school winger and he had all the traits which made him a real match winner when he was at the top of his game. In his first season he made 18 appearances but he would have to remain patient as it wasn’t until the 1962/63 campaign where he would cement his place in the side. Lindsay was a frequent goalscorer against Airdrieonians which certainly made him a favourite with the ‘Well faithful. In 1968 he was given a free transfer having made over 200 appearances in Claret and Amber, his next port of call was with Dumfries side Queen of the South.
