World Great Grand Masters Hong Kong 2008

George Dunbar 2008 World Cup Hong Kong

George Dunbar

The over 65s as usual suffered from an inability to convert possession into goals and managed only a scoreless draw against Australia Over 70s and a win against Japan in their five qualifying matches before defeating Japan in the 5th/6th play off. 88 year old George Dunbar, who had last visited Hong Kong 65 years before on board a Japanese prison ship on his way to a prisoner of war camp in Japan, had the satisfaction of scoring a goal against the Japanese. George, who was treated like a hero by his Japanese opponents, was awarded Scotland’s only trophy when he received a special ‘longevity’ award in the presentation ceremony.
