King Edward, Aberdeenshire born centre forward George Taylor began his football career with junior clubs Fittle Rangers and Hall Russell’s in 1935 before joining Scottish League Aberdeen in August 1936, making his Scottish League debut at Queen of the South in March 1938. He had made only 6 appearances for Aberdeen by the time of the outbreak of the Second World War, and during the War he continued to regularly appear for Aberdeen in wartime football, scoring 27 goals in 188 wartime fixtures for The Dons.

After the War he resumed peacetime football with Aberdeen and played in the Southern League Cup Final against Rangers, scoring a last minute winner as Aberdeen won the trophy in 1946 by 3 goals to 2, the year before it became the Scottish League Cup, the club’s first senior trophy. By now playing at left half or left back, he played left half as Aberdeen lost to Rangers at Hampden Park in the inaugural Scottish League Cup Final in front of 82,700, and also won a Scottish Cup medal at left back when Aberdeen beat Hibernian 2-1 in the 1947 Final at Hampden Park to win the Cup for the first time in front of 82,140.

After 9 goals in 111 peacetime appearances for Aberdeen he signed for Second Division Plymouth Argyle in August 1948, making his Football League debut at Barnsley that August, and he played for two seasons scoring twice in 48 appearances before retiring and taking up a post as the club’s trainer. His association with Argyle lasted nearly 20 more years and included a month as Argyle’s caretaker manager from January to February 1955 and a brief spell as co-manager with Neil Douglas from March 1960 to November 1961.
