George Best: The Cricketing Connection

🕓 Reading time: 1 minute

When George Best, not yet 15, journeyed from Belfast and took the train from the Liverpool Lime Street Station to Manchester for the first time, a curious surprise awaited him.

Hailing a taxi to Old Trafford, when he reached the stadium, Best found the likes of Bob Barber, Ken Higgs, Peter Lever, Peter Parfitt, Geoff Pullar, Fred Titmus and Alan Moss engaged in a keen tussle between Lancashire and Middlesex. The constellation of Test stars did little to placate the confused young lad.

Obviously, the taxi driver had taken him to the wrong venue, a mistake that very few cabbies will make today.
