George Barnes

3 weeks ago By Peter Martin

Sad news to report, the recent passing of former Highland player and captain George Barnes.

George played for Highland during the 1960's with many of Highland's greats. Former club president Ian Nixon played with him and George is described as a centre of the old mould, not big but fast and jinky.

While working in Inverness he met his wife Dina, a nurse from Ullapool. Ian was lucky enough to catch up with George and his son when they went to Murrayfield to watch Highland in the 2016 Shield Final.

Everyone at Highland passes on their sincere condolences to George's family.
